Press & Media


Over 10 weeks from March 1, 2015 through May 10, 2015 the world was hungry for news of the Women On 20s campaign. Every major media outlet ran at least one story, sometimes more, engaging the nation – and the world – with videos, words, pictures, polls, debates, opinions and cartoons.  The conversation raced around the globe via talk radio, blogs, Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, and filtered down to classrooms and dinner tables in towns across America. In the process, hopefully much was learned about the significant contributions women have made in shaping the country we are today, and about the 15 women, in particular, who were featured as candidates on our website. We like to think of the whole experience as Women’s History Month on steroids estrogen.
