KOIN 6 and Portland’s CW want 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 quality of life.

KOIN 6 and Portland’s CW will celebrate local women that 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 in their everyday lives.

In March, we’ll highlight four local women who will then be considered for Nexstar’s nationwide 2022 Woman of the Year award.
