We are pleased to announce a new annual feature for Oxford Magazine – The Real Women of Oxford.

For more the past 18 months, we have been researching and taking note of the accomplished women who deserve the honor of being recognized in a big way.

We talked to many of our community colleagues to narrow down the list and are pleased to announce these 12 women as the 2024 Real Women of Oxford for what they have done in the community. 

Congratulations, and thanks for letting us celebrate you and what you have done that makes Oxford, Oxford.
