Ovation: A Tribute to Iowa Women and Girls

Ovation: A Tribute to Iowa Women and Girls is IWF’s signature publication, delivered annually at unveiling events across the state. Family members, friends, colleagues, or community members nominate a woman or girl in their life that they wish to honor and celebrate.

Each tribute in the publication offers a glimpse into the deeply important and enormously varied ways these women make an impact on their families, friends, communities, and professions.

Ovation also serves as a critical resource for IWF’s annual operating funds and enables IWF to accomplish its mission of improving the lives of Iowa’s women and girls. More than 700 women and girls across the state have been honored with a tribute since the book’s inception in 2014.

The 2023 unveilings will be held at the end of June in several locations across the state.

Even though this is our last edition of OVATION, honoring Iowa’s women and girls will always be a key part of IWF’s annual calendar. It’s not too late to consider a general donation to help support IWF’s work. Support a tribute today!
