Who is a Woman of Distinction? Consider the many women in Darien and Norwalk who have inspired others with their work to improve our local, national or global community. They think outside of the box and break down barriers. They are our mothers, grandmothers, wives, friends and daughters. They set an example for our daughters, granddaughters and ourselves.

Women of Distinction committee co-chairman Dawn Crouch and Erin McMurray-Killelea invite residents to visit for more details about nomination criteria and to download a nomination form. Stay connected with the YW through Facebook at and Twitter @ywcadarien.

The YWCA Darien/Norwalk is dedicated to eliminating racism, empowering women, and promoting peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all. Its local vision is to give women the support and tools they need to transform their lives, be confident in their choices and raise healthy families.
