Nominations sought for Solano County WomAn of the Year

The theme for 2019 is “Visionary Women: Champions of Peace & Nonviolence.”  This year we honor women who have led efforts to end war, violence, and injustice and pioneered the use of nonviolence to change society. These Honorees embraced the fact that the means determine the ends and so developed nonviolent methods to ensure just and peaceful results.

For generations, women have resolved conflicts in their homes, schools, and communities. They have rejected violence as counterproductive and stressed the need to restore respect, establish justice, and reduce the causes of conflict as the surest way to peace. From legal defense and public education to direct action and civil disobedience, women have expanded the American tradition of using inclusive, democratic and active means to reduce violence, achieve peace, and promote the common good.

The Nomination Process
Woman of the Year Nominations are solicited by the Solano County Women’s History Month Luncheon Committee. The nominations are reviewed and decided by a selection committee.  The deadline for nominations is February 15, 2019.
