According to a 2012 Fleishman Hillard Study, today's U.S. female consumer values the opinion of others, and over half of all women consider one of their roles to be that of a broadcaster, responsible for helping others make smart choices. The Women's Choice Award sets the standard for helping women make smarter choices by honoring brands that focus on delivering an exceptional customer experience women love.

The award doesn't just signify that these brands have women's favor – it signifies that women are willing to recommend it to others according to Ms. Passi. "When a woman is willing to stake her reputation on a recommendation, it means that business has earned her loyalty. Those are the businesses we wish to recognize for their efforts and commitment to the No. 1 consumer – women," she says. "We are pleased to salute these outstanding companies for their focus on excellence, a commitment that is recognized by female consumers nationwide."
