Let us introduce you. It’s time to roll out the 2022 edition of the 25 Women You Need to Know and 5 Young Women to Watch.
Now in its 16th year, the program is the Tallahassee Democrat’s way of honoring women who lead from the front or from behind the scenes.
With Women’s History Month as a backdrop, you’ll be able to meet the women whose names we list below in the pages of the Tallahassee Democrat and on tallahassee.com.
We’ll be featuring a profile a day starting today (March 15) in the TLH Life section and on tallahassee.com for the next 30 days.
