Domashny Ochag Announced Start of Annual Women’s Power Award Contest

For the sixth year running, Domashny Ochag is holding its Women’s Power award honoring not stars or media personalities, but ordinary women who have changed their lives and the lives of those around them for the better. The award was established to recognize women who have found their calling and succeeded at it – women who provide a positive example by taking a creative and energetic approach to life, whose determination and strength of character enable them to achieve whatever they set out to do. 

«This time, the competition is not starting at the most favorable moment, – said Domashny Ochag Editor-in-Chief Natalia Rodikova. – But we decided not to cancel it in hopes that the opportunity to tell your inspiring story would move you and others, provide an example of an active approach to life and support the belief that, even if not everything in life depends on us, a great deal does».
