At Monica + Andy, we celebrate strong, fearless women every single day. 

 So in honor of International Women’s Day on March 8th, we’re looking for moms who are making waves in your communities. Women like Lindsay Avner, of Bright Pink, who has made a serious impact on women’s health right here in Chicago. 

 Think of your teachers, neighbors, friends, or colleagues. Women who are fostering progress and inclusiveness. Women who are making a real difference in the lives of others. 

 From your nominations, we will choose three moms to showcase on our blog—each one receiving a $250 Monica + Andy gift certificate. 

 I can’t wait to read your submissions and celebrate these wave makers with you!
