Women of Vision awards are presented each year by the Arlington County Commission on the Status of Women as part of the March celebration of Women's History Month. The awards are given to individuals who demonstrate a strong commitment to women's issues and have, over time, developed and communicated their vision for women and engaged community members and other leaders in order to realize this vision.
The award originated in 1988, and honored women and men from the community who have made outstanding contributions toward improving the lives of women and girls in Arlington. Each year, since 1998, the Commission honors women who are recognized for their accomplishments and contributions to improving the lives and opportunities for Arlington residents, especially women. Award recipients must live, work, or volunteer in Arlington.
