Everyday, women worldwide are performing amazing acts of bravery that often go un-recognized. They are taking care of their families. They are standing up for their rights. They seek education. They run for government office. They raise their voices when they have been told to be silent. Through their actions, they are changing the world for all of us.

Three Ways to Take Action

Put your hero on the map! Submit a story, poem, letter, or other creative expression to honor a woman hero in your life.
