MACOMB, IL - The Macomb Feminist Network (MFN) is soliciting nominations for its 2013 Writing Women Back into History Award.

The award, established in 2010, honors women who have made extraordinary contributions toward shaping the local community and expands our knowledge of these contributions.

Self-nominations will be considered when they are accompanied by a supporting letter. Nominations of women who fit the criteria but have passed away also will be considered.

Past award recipients include: Wanda Black, Mary Ellen Graff, Rosa Julestrom and Beth Stiffler (2010); Constance DeMuth Berg, Marcia Moll and Ruth Parks (2011) and Maria Dunstan, Judith Kohler and Donna Werner (2012).
