As we approach International Women’s Month in March, FOX 48 wants to recognize the great contributions that women have made to our nation and local communities. Remarkable Women is part of a nationwide Nexstar Media initiative to honor the influence that women have had on public policy, social progress and the quality of life.

FOX 48 will celebrate local women that inspire, lead and forge the way for other women. It’s not just about one day or one month — it’s about what they do, day-in and day-out.

Check back each week as FOX 48 reveals each of the local finalists. We’ll soon announce which one of these “Remarkable Women” will win a trip to New York City!
