The 2011 Lady Balls Award -- Ovarian Fortitude ... The Results

First, my apologies -- I meant to have this published on MONDAY Nov. 14, but since I've been feeling healthier, I feel the need to catch up on my #GoTheDist goals and get back into my routine.  Blogging fell by the wayside!

So... without further delay I give you the winners of the 2011 Lady Balls Awards:

The Brass Ovaries Award is in recognition of a woman who has a certain amount of chutzpah, swagger, or bravery.  When she walks, you hear her ovaries ring out with a certain "I am woman, hear me roar."

The winner of the Brass Ovaries Award says what is on her mind, stands behind what she says, and is unafraid of defending her positions. 

Tara's blog can be found at  Take a moment and read her entries and you'll hear those Brass Ovaries ringing!  Heck, I can hear them ringing miles away.  She is one of the most fearless people I know.

The Iron Ovaries Award is in recognition of a woman who makes a man's testes want to hide because she is the epitome of strength, endurance, grit, and fearlessness.

The winner of the Iron Ovaries Award inspires others by taking on challenges with a courageous heart. Her strength of character carries her through the day. She might not always finish strong, but she always finishes.

Check out if you want to see why Anda dominated the Iron Ovaries category! On a more personal note, I've seen her face her challenges with self-awareness and bravery.  She never gives in!

The Steel Ovaries Award is in recognition of the most exceptional woman among women.  She enriches all womanhood just by showing up.  She exhibits aspects of both Brass and Iron Ovaries. 

The winner of the Steel Ovaries Award is a leader among women.  She is proud to be a woman, and proud to be stronger than most men she knows.  She has seen adversity and risen above.  She endures.

Check out Leslie's blog at and learn about the challenges she faces as she tries to become the woman she knows she can be.  I'm just starting to get to know her, but she might be one of the few people as crazy energetic as I am.   See her acceptance speech here.

Kudos to the winners, and much love to the runners up!! Truly, you are all spectacular women!

Ladies -- if you would like me to crosspost to any acceptance speeches feel free to send me a link.
Truly when we see one woman succeed the whole gender benefits.  The whole world benefits.

Right click on the photos, "save as" and then go wild if you want to post on your blog.


Congrats to all of the winners! I posted a "thank you/acceptance speech" on my blog. Can't wait to get to know the rest of the winners!
