The Kentucky Commission on Women is dedicated to
elevating the status of women and girls in the Commonwealth,
empowering them to overcome barriers to equity, and
expanding opportunities to achieve their fullest potential.

Women's History Month - March 2017

​Juliette Gordon Low, founder of the Girl Scouts, once said, “The work of today is the history of tomorrow, and we are its makers.” The Kentucky Commission on Women (KCW) believes she was referring to the efforts we put into the young women today reflecting in the history of tomorrow. As such, we believe role models and mentors are “history makers.”

The Kentucky Commission on Women is honoring women in March by recognizing “history makers” and is accepting nominations from women and girls who have been inspired by these women. During the month of March, we will spotlight up to four female mentors or role models who have inspired another woman or young girl to help them achieve their goals and dreams. As iron sharpens iron, we believe female mentors and role models increase the number of successful women in our society.

The women chosen will be showcased for a week each on the Commission’s Facebook and Twitter pages, and website. News releases will be distributed to the media throughout Kentucky as well. Those chosen will also receive a certificate of recognition and appreciation.

Have you had a mentor or role model who you feel is deserving of this honor? Find the official nomination form here … and share the story about the woman who has been so important in helping you fulfill your goals and dreams.​ All nominations must be submitted by February 28, 2017.
