We are asking you to take the time and nominate an extraordinary woman in your life.
We are looking for nominations for ordinary women doing extraordinary things. These women come from all walks of life – mothers, daughters, grandmothers, sisters, the woman you see at the check out counter at the grocery store and the woman who just finished her rounds at the retirement home. These women support us and everyone around them. Their willingness to show up every day is beyond inspiring, especially during the times where it would be easier to just give up.
In a society where equality for women and girls is yet to exist, these every day women are working to make a positive difference. They make our community better and they deserve to be recognized.
These are ordinary women who have chosen to make their lives extraordinary, and they show us it is possible for any woman to do the same!
