In honor of International Women’s Day, the nominees for the first WOMEN’S CHOICE AWARD SHOW were announced yesterday, proving that the future is female!
The Women’s Choice Award Show will honor fierce women who passionately advocate for the empowerment of girls and women.
The Women’s Choice Award Show is an important opportunity to let the voices of girls and women be heard in a big way with a show dedicated to honoring and celebrating trailblazing women. The show will also serve to inspire girls to step into their power and pursue their dreams.
“Now is the time to celebrate the power of ‘She’ and all that girls and women contribute to the human experience. We are so humbled to have an exceptional group of fierce female community activists, everyday Sheroes, powerful female storytellers and celebrities who use their platform for good, as part of the first Women’s Choice Award Show. We’re excited to honor the incredible accomplishments of boundary-breaking women and inspire girls to live up to their potential. We look forward to raising funds and awareness through the Women’s Choice Award Show to support our cause partner I Am That Girl, and all of the wonderful work they do to foster self confidence in young women,” said Delia Passi, CEO of Women’s Choice Award.
Starting today, voting is open to determine winners in three categories, including the “Shero,” “Spotlight,” and “Voice of Women” awards. The Shero Award will be given to a passionate activist doing incredible work that benefits girls and women. The Voice of Women Award will be given to a leader who has helped shape the positive portrayal of girls and women in entertainment and media.

The Women’s Choice Award Show will also present the Visionary Award to a fierce female humanitarian who has dedicated her life to the empowerment of girls and women.
The Women’s Choice Award Show is proud to include the non-profit I Am That Girl as the cause partner for this very special event. I Am That Girl is shifting girl culture.

By building a community for girls to be seen, be heard, and belong, I Am That Girl is giving them something bigger than themselves to stand for and creating a healthier, more powerful world.
I Am That Girl Founder Alexis Jones will speak at the event and girls from the global I Am That Girl community will be on hand to present awards to Women’s Choice Award Show winners. Girls from local I Am That Girl chapters will enjoy an inspiring and empowering night as VIP guests at the celebration.
