The World Woman Foundation honors seven extraordinary women with our first global Hero Awards. Each, in her own way, is fighting to transform the obstacles and burdens of the past into bright new possibilities for us all. World Woman Foundation annually honors female leaders who have demonstrated leadership, strength, and courage in their commitment to causes or positively impacted others’ lives of women and girls to create a better world.
