Nominate woman as heroes

The public is invited to nominate exemplary women as candidates for an Honouring Women Month’s display.

The photographic heroes display will be unveiled at the International Women’s Day Ceremony on 9 March.

‘This year’s theme for Honouring Women Month is Heroes Among Us,’ said Programme Officer Miriam Foster, of the Empowerment Community & Development Agency.

‘The theme symbolises the idea that ordinary women all around us are doing extraordinary things. Often the same women are constantly recognised in the local media, but there are so many women whose lives have been a heroic journey, and who are an example to us all.’

The deadline for nominations is 23 February.

Nomination forms are available online at and at the ECDA office.

Fill out a hero nomination form and submit it, along with a digital picture of the woman, by e-mail to Ms Foster at [email protected] or by hand to the ECDA (formerly the Women’s Resource Centre) office in Elizabethan Square, Ground Floor.
