The Ethical Humanist Award, established in 1970, is the Society’s highest honor. It recognizes an individual who has acted with extraordinary moral courage, without regard for the sanction or acclaim of his or her peers or of society, and whose actions have had broad humanizing implications. This is the first time the Award is being given to an organization, marking the moral courage and tenacity of so many who have worked for women’s rights.
