At last, our panel of professional Chicago-area men has released the names of women they admire for hard work, professionalism and community service.
Unlike our 50 Most Wanted Bachelors salute, the women on this list are recognized for boldness, innovation, raising the bar, crashing glass ceilings, introducing new thought in their professional realms and community service.
A note from the lead male panelist:
"Your work and your passion for people have helped to make big things happen in this city and beyond. We look forward to congratulating you in person.
The Panel of Real Men"

Selection process: Public nominations were accepted on the www.SixBrownChicks.com website, and the list of 1,253 nominees was provided to our panel of professional Chicago-area men on March 20th. The panel volunteered to make the final selections on the condition of anonymity. The Six Brown Chicks and our immediate relatives were not eligible to be recognized on the 50 Women of Distinction list.
Note: More than 50 women will be honored, per the panel.
