The billionaire hedge fund manager George Soros has spent much of his life looking to aid others through his work as a political donor, philanthropist and financial expert. A well known liberal and counterculture figure since the 1960s, Soros developed much of his open society ideals during the 1950s and 1960s when he was a student in London and later a resident of Greenwich Village, New York where the counterculture was being born in the late 1950s; George Soros set out to follow the ideas of philosopher Karl Popper who was a teacher at the London School of economics when Soros was studying there. The open society ideals of Popper include the advancement of liberal ideologies that have formed the basis of the work of George Soros for the majority of his life and led to him becoming a major donor to the Democratic Party of the U.S. Some articles about George Soros can be read on Forbes.
The open society ideas of Karl Popper include a large amount of personal choice being made available to individuals across the world, which includes the chance to live the life one feels is right for oneself. George Soros has developed a range of funding options from his own personal fortune of over $25 billion that include a woman’s right to choose; among the groups supporting abortion and family planning options for women are Planned Parenthood where Soros has become a major donor to advance the cause for millions of women across the world. Alongside the determination to allow women to have the chance to make decisions about their own bodies, George Soros has also looked to assist the cause for individuals who are backing euthanasia for the terminally ill. Soros has made his support of this cause clear as a right to choose for the individual as he has developed links to the Project on Death USA through the Open Society Foundations.

Encouraging each and every person in the world to live a full and open life is something George Soros has always looked to encourage, particularly for women who often struggle to develop a career that allows them the chance to attempt to work in environments where women receive a fair level of payment when compared to men. The National Partnership for women and families is a group backed by George Soros on discoverthenetworks.org who look to change the fact women are paid around $0.77 for every $1 received by a man working in a similar position. Making sure the people of the world have the right to choose how they live their life free from discrimination in all its forms is a major part of the philanthropic and political work of George Soros who was a major donor to the Presidential campaign of Hillary Clinton.
