Women have long played a leading role in the environment. Among the earliest American conservationists was Harriet Hemenway, who in 1896 brought her friends together to defend birds from being slaughtered for their plumes' use in fashion. In doing so, she helped to found the Audubon Society, now over one hundred years old and one of the most effective conservation organizations in the world.
Audubon’s Women in Conservation strives to celebrate the incredible work of female conservationists and environmentalists through the prestigious Rachel Carson Award, and to empower future female leaders through its work in schools and Professional Development for Young Women.
