2024 Commonwealth Heroines Celebration

June 14 @ 11:00 am 2:00 pm

Rain date: This event is rain or shine.
Fees: This event is free and open to all.

Save the Date! We are excited to announce that the Massachusetts Commission on the Status of Women is hosting the 21st annual Commonwealth Heroines Celebration on Friday, June 24rd, 2024. Time and room is subject to shift – stay tuned for additional details.

The Commonwealth Heroines initiative identifies and honors extraordinary women from across the state. We are asking legislators to play a special role by partnering with us to identify the 2024 Class of Commonwealth Heroines.

What is the Commonwealth Heroines Celebration?

The Commonwealth Heroines Celebration is an opportunity to recognize the women who don’t always make the news but who are truly making a difference in their communities, businesses, or volunteer endeavors. We rely on legislators to nominate incredible women in their districts for their contributions to their community and the Commonwealth.

How can YOU help?

The MCSW respectfully requests that each legislator recommend one female constituent to represent her community and be honored as a 2023 Commonwealth Heroine. All Commonwealth Heroines will be invited to attend a ceremony on June 14, 2024, at the State House in Boston. More details will follow regarding the day’s schedule. 

We hope you can take the time to help us recognize a Commonwealth Heroine in your community (who has not yet been previously honored and is not a State House employee or family member).
