In the spring of 2011, the Malta House of Care Foundation instituted the “Wonder Women” awards to honor Connecticut women who are changing the world — publicly or quietly, on stage or behind the scenes.
Who is a Malta House of Care Wonder Woman? She is someone who is improving her communities, through her words and deeds, every single day.
Malta’s 56 Wonder Women are students, businesswomen, grandmothers, doctors, musicians, educators, advocates, scientists, artists, nurses, lawyers, and dancers. They represent every vocation and avocation and every age, race, religion, and ethnic group – although not all in the same person, and not all in the same year.
Wonder Women make an extraordinary impact in often very ordinary ways, and in so doing, inspire countless others to make a difference in their communities, too.
