In the coming weeks, DCW50  in Washington, DC wants to recognize the great contributions women have made to our nation and local communities. Remarkable Women is part of a nationwide Nexstar Media initiative to honor the influence that women have had on public policy, social progress and the quality of life.

Leading up to International Women’s Day, DCW50 will highlight four local women who inspire, lead and forge the way for other women. It’s not just about one day or one month — it’s about what they do, day-in and day-out.

One woman will be named DCW50’s Woman of the Year and win a trip to New York City to attend The Mel Robbins Show. From the more than 100 local winners across the USA, one woman will be selected and named Nexstar Media Group’s Woman of the Year!

We introduce you to our first “Remarkable Woman”  – Cyndi Glass from Montgomery County, MD.  Following the loss of her son from an overdose, Cyndi Glass was determined to inform and help raise awareness about the tragic circumstances that come from drug addiction.  Look for more Remarkable Women posted every Tuesday through March 3rd.  Cyndi’s story:
