Year of the Rebellious Woman

Are you a Rebellious Woman?

Of course you are. Now it’s time to share your story with the world.

The outrageous acts and everyday rebellions that are making our neighborhoods safer, our workplaces more equitable, our lives more just and our possibilities endless aren’t just taking place in Washington, Hollywood or Wall Street. They’re taking place right here in Illinois, and we have YOU to thank. Few things are more inspiring or more empowering than reading about how one person – one Rebellious Woman – is changing the world in ways big and small. We want everyone to hear about our hometown superheroes.
