Cast Your Vote: Women Deliver Contest

24 FEBRUARY 2012 - Voting has begun on the Women Deliver’s Facebook page to determine the top 50 inspiring ideas and solutions that deliver for girls and women from 2011.

Out of hundreds of submissions, a selection committee of experts and advocates from leading global NGOs and foundations chose 25 per category. The top 125 will be posted today, and voters may choose their 10 favorites, per category. The 50 winners will be announced on International Women’s Day, March 8th. Winners will be featured prominently on Women Deliver's website, through the selection committee's social media portals, and at the Women Deliver 2013 conference in Kuala Lumpur.

This contest is a continuation of a tradition at Women Deliver. Every year, in conjunction with International Women’s Day, Women Deliver celebrates the progress made on behalf of girls and women worldwide. Our Women Deliver 100 list in 2011, which featured 100 of the most inspiring people who have delivered for girls and women, was covered by over 100 traditional and new media sources. This year, to continue the momentum, Women Deliver is spotlighting the top ideas and solutions making the world a better place for girls and women.

These advancements could have been made by an individual, governments, the private sector, or civil society, but they must have helped to improve the condition of girls and women around the world, in one or more of the following 5 categories:

  • Technologies and Innovations
  • Educational Initiatives
  • Health Modernization
  • Advocacy and Awareness Campaigns
  • Leadership and Empowerment Programs
