For the third year in a row, the Ukrainian Institute and the UN Women Ukraine awarded Women in Arts winners to highlight achievements of female artists and inspire them for further work. The winners were announced on March 12, within the HeForShe Arts Week.
In 2021, some new elements have been added to the Award. Organizers have split the "Theatre and Film" category into two separate ones. Furthermore, a new category has been introduced this year: Special Mention. It will be awarded to women whose activities cannot be assigned to any of the categories, but whose contribution to Ukrainian culture is important.
