Arkansas Supreme Court Justice Rhonda Wood has been named WOW’s Woman of the Year for 2021.
WOW, or Women’s Own Worth, is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping victims of domestic violence. Its mission is to help women and their families sustain an independent life after suffering the effects of trauma.
Every year, WOW spotlights a woman who has made an impact on others.
“Justice Rhonda Wood is on a mission to make sure survivors are seen and heard in and outside of our courts. This is just one of the many reasons so many nominated her for this award. We are thrilled she will be accepting this recognition for her outstanding service,” the organization’s founder Jajuan Archer said in a post on Tuesday.
Women’s Own Worth provides services such as counseling for victims and families, assistance with living arrangements and transportation, dental and physical health, high education scholarships and victim’s advocacy.
