Women We Admire: Top 100 Women Leaders of Connecticut

Women We Admire is pleased to announce The Top 100 Women Leaders of Connecticut for 2022. These women are celebrated for their contribution to the workforce and their personal accomplishments along the way. Since colonial times, women of Connecticut have kept their communities and businesses running despite the barriers that have stood in their way. The state was home to historical women who made it possible for today’s women to thrive in the workplace. Educator and abolitionist Prudence Crandall and woman’s suffrage advocate Isabella Beecher worked tirelessly to eliminate barriers women faced during the 1800s. Their work continued into the twentieth century with other notable women of Connecticut like Ella Grasso, the first woman to be elected as a US governor and Mary Townsend Seymour, champion of African American civil rights. Thanks to their dedication and fight towards equality, women of today are able to prosper across all industries.”
