Program helps future female leaders

The University of Central Florida’s Young Women Leaders Program has received the 2011 Donna Allen Award for Feminist Advocacy.

The Donna Allen Award recognizes women or groups who demonstrate feminist advocacy through media activism by promoting the rights and freedoms of women and minorities across the world. Donna Allen founded the Women’s Institute for Freedom of the Press in Washington, D.C.

The Commission on the Status of Women, part of the Association of Education in Journalism and Mass Communication, will present the award at the association convention in St. Louis in August.

“So many amazing women have worked so hard in building and expanding this program,” said Maria Roman, coordinator for the Young Women Leaders Program, who will accept the award.
