Ms Magazine Associate Publisher Named Young Woman of Achievement

Ms Magazine Associate Publisher Alicia Daly was honored with a "Young Woman of Achievement" Award by the Women's Information Network (WIN) at their 13th annual awards event on Wednesday evening. Daly, who joined the staff of Ms. magazine in 2002 after the magazine’s publishing was taken over by the Feminist Majority Foundation (FMF), was cited for her role in “reenergizing the magazine and securing its future for the next generation of feminists.”

As a feminist activist for more than a decade, Daly began her work in the women’s rights movement with the FMF in 1996 as a key leader in the statewide student campaign to defeat Proposition 209 – a ballot initiative which sought to end affirmative action programs in California.

Two other young women with significant achievements were also honored by WIN from among the 25 women nominated for “Young Women of Achievement” awards. Eureka Gilkey was recognized for her extensive efforts to elect pro-choice women to office as the National Training Director for EMILY’s List and in her former position as deputy political director of NARAL Pro-Choice America. The third honoree was Margie Omero, president of Momentum Analysis, LLC, a Democratic public opinion research firm based in Washington D.C. Omero provides research for Democratic campaigns and progressive causes.

Founded in 1989, the Women’s Information Network provides a forum for professional advancement, mentoring and leadership opportunities for pro-choice women in the Washington DC area. The all-volunteer organization boasts a membership of more than 1,000 in the Washington, DC area.
