Help Young Women Rise During Women’s History Month (March 2016)

YWRising March campaign

One of our favorite things to do here at Young Women Rising is to help elevate the amazing young women in our community (women ages 18-35 in Connecticut). This March we’ll be highlighting one young woman each work day on our social media (follow us on Facebook here). We hope to show that the story line the media creates about younger generations being uncaring about feminist issues and uninvolved in our communities is completely false. We KNOW that story line is bogus and we’re excited to raise up the names and stories of young women right here in our own state who are making a difference!

We strongly encourage you to nominate a young woman (or two!) for this recognition. If selected, she will receive a certificate in the mail and will be highlighted on our Facebook page this March.

*Your nominee must be between the ages of 18-35 and reside in Connecticut.*

Nominations are now closed.

Please note that there is no formal recognition ceremony, those selected will be highlighted online and receive a certificate by mail.

Know of an amazing woman that just happens to be outside of our demographic? You’re in luck! Our friends at the CT Women’s Education and Legal Fund are running a similar program with no age restrictions. Check out their website for details.
