Dayton YWCA recognizes Women of Influence on International Women's Day
DAYTON, Ohio (WKEF/WRGT) – The Dayton YWCA celebrated International Women’s Day on Thursday with its 21st annual Women of Influence awards.
Organizers said the event is not only the largest on the they have, but it’s also their favorite, because it’s all about empowering women.
More than 800 people filled the room to recognize female leaders in the community, with FOX 45’s Shavon Anderson serving as emcee.
The theme for 2018 fell in line with the “#MeToo” and “#TimesUp” movements, and everyone was asked to wear black to stand with women, reflecting the display from the Golden Globes.
