This month is International Women's Month, and to celebrate this observance dedicated to women's empowerment, Female Network compiled a list of fierce local female personalities from show business as well as public affairs whose achievements make us proud to be women.
Which of these ladies do you find the most inspiring? Vote for your favorite femme to let us know! Leave a comment to tell us why you admire the women you voted for and tell us about other people you feel deserve a mention.
Voting has been extended to April 9! Until then, you can cast your vote as many times as you like.
Note: Voting percentage does not equal the number of votes. Remember that as the voting margin (difference among the number of votes per entry) between the leadingcelebrity and the other nominees increases, the voting percentages will change. The bigger the differences in number of votes, the bigger the differences between percentages. This means that even though the number of votes for your bet is going up, the voting percentage can decrease.
