Lifetime Celebrates Remarkable Women
Monday, June 15, 2009
In 2009 Lifetime launched Remarkable Women, a new, weekly on-air series of vignettes that spotlights extraordinary women who inspire and empower others to make a difference in their communities, from First Lady Michelle Obama to such unsung heroes as Rebecca Singer, a remarkable nurse serving Doctors Without Borders, to Patsy Bates, a hairdresser from Gardena, CA that won a landmark lawsuit against her health provider after they dropped her coverage when she was diagnosed with breast cancer. The vignettes are also fully featured on myLifetime.com with action items the encourage involvement in the community.
If you have a “remarkable woman” in your midst that you would like to nominate for the campaign, please contact us, since it is such an amazing way for us to bring attention to your organization as well, if they are directly involved with you. We are looking for creative stories and diverse backgrounds including women making a difference in ways we’ve never thought of before.
Here is a link to our online archive of the vignettes for your reference: http://www.mylifetime.com/my-lifetime-commitment/ewc/every-women-counts-salutes/index. This week we are highlighting Amy Palmer, CEO of Operation Homefront, in celebration of our season three premiere of Army Wives.
Your reply will go to Amanda Crumley, our VP of Advocacy and Public Affairs.
We value your input and support as we build a robust campaign and find all those women in your community that typically go unnoticed despite the remarkable difference they are making!
