Holding Our Own and the Women’s Building are again jointly celebrating women’s community building and feminist social change organizing in the Capital Region. We invite you to nominate your local feminist heroes, visionaries, builders, pillars of resistance and community, etc.!  Read more on this year’s awards categories here.

Celebrate with us on Saturday, December 7th at the Hilton Hotel Albany! While we will not be recognizing 33 people this year, we are committed to making sure another 30 years do not pass without acknowledging the fantastic work happening in the Capital Region. So, in that spirit, we will gather again to celebrate our very own Fabulous Feminists.

Recognizing that leadership comes in a wide range of styles and forms, sometimes quiet and sometimes loud and in your face, we tried to create categories of awards that reflect the diversity of individuals and contributions they have made. You will find most of the categories from last year are still here, with the addition of the Nexus Award. This category was created to reflect our current programmatic trajectory and honor our history of working at the intersections of oppressions and issues.

  • Awards are open to all women, trans, gender queer and gender non-conforming individuals with the exception of the “Pick Your Own” category which is open to everyone including cis-men.
  • You may nominate as many individuals as you want.
  • You may nominate multiple people in the same category. However, please only select one category for each person. Please see the attached Award Descriptions for the available categories or download and print them here: Award Descriptions PDF.
  • Please use a separate form for each nominee.
  • Last year’s recipients are not eligible, no matter how awesome they are.:) Fabulous Feminists from 2012
