Nominate Your Super Woman

the Laurel Magazine


Next year marks the centennial of America granting women the right to vote.

We can’t imagine how on earth the Land of the Free denied this basic right to half of its population to until well into the 20th Century.

Here’s a little fact that’ll confound your sensibilities – women in Afghanistan were allowed to vote one year prior to those of us here, Democracy’s Daughters.

Well, we here at The Laurel want to honor this monumental step for our country – For Laurel, 2020 will clearly be the Year of the Woman.

To accomplish this, and ensure that our mothers, sisters, wives, and daughters get the attention that they deserve, we’re going to need your help. Each issue, we’ll be selecting a local woman (and that includes part-timers and those who were born here but are now living elsewhere) and giving her a chance to shine in our pages.

We need you to nominate these women. Send us an email by our December 1 (2019) deadline to info@thelaurelmagazine.com with your candidate, and give us your reasons for why she should be chosen.

Those reasons can resonate with the community or the world (perhaps she’s been at the forefront of an important issue), or they can be deeply personal (maybe she made all the difference to you or someone else on the planet and her generosity or wisdom or courage should be recognized).

We’re confident that our readers, who time and time again have proven themselves to be bright, and curious, and committed, can help us recognize these women.

Please don’t hesitate to fill our Inbox with your nominees (and yes, you can nominate as many as you wish) and help us make 2020 shine with the radiance of these remarkable women.
