Women of the Third Millennium


Says Lidiya Lisimova, general producer of the Woman of the 3rd Millennium event, The Woman of the 3rd Millennium Award Presentation ceremony was much more than just another glamorous event  it is the first step on the road that leads to the carrying out an ambitious project which, we hope, will be at the European or even world level. We plan to run radio and TV shows at which the winners of the Woman of the 3rd Millennium contest will be greeted and presented; we also want to publish an almanac to commemorate the event and stage shows dedicated to it. We hope that our work will be a good contribution to the cultural development of Ukraine.


One of the significant events of the year 2006 in Ukraine was the Zhinka III Tysyacholittya  Woman of the 3rd Millennium Award Presentation ceremony which was held at the International Centre of Culture and the Arts in Kyiv. The gathering of so many beautiful women wearing beautiful dresses among beautiful flowers turned the event into a festival of beauty.

The organizers of the Woman of the 3rd Millennium contest asked major companies, both state-run and private, and all kinds of public and government organizations to send to the Higher Woman of the 3rd Millennium Representative Council their proposals as to who was worth being awarded such a title. The Council, made up of 20 well-known actors, designers, businesspeople and public figures, and headed by Professor Oleksandr Zlotnyk, a composer, carefully studied all the proposals to choose 48 women to be awarded the title of Woman of the 3rd Millennium in various categories and nominations.

Presiding at the award-presentation ceremony was Oleksandr Zlotnyk. Among the guests were Volodymyr Semynozhenko, Volodymyr Hryshko, Oleh Salmin, Oleksandr Bystrushkin, Volodymyr Horyansky, Pavlo Zibrov, Vitaliy Bilonozhko and other prominent men in the spheres of Ukrainian politics, business and culture. The men present at the ceremony emphasized that they considered it to be a great honour to have such a wonderful opportunity to greet the wonderful women who proved that their achievements in so many fields were no less significant than those of men. The MCs Vasyl Ilashchuk and Oleksiy Bohdanovych added their own special touch to the festive mood. The ceremony was enhanced by a colourful show with pop stars and ballet dancers entertaining the audience.

The women who were awarded at the ceremony are worthy representatives of Ukrainian society who have made considerable contributions to business and culture, who maintain family and social traditions, and who, by the virtue of their womanhood fill our life with love and kindness  and also who, no matter how busy they may be at work or at home, always remain attractive, well groomed, considerate and supportive.

Official greetings came  and were read at the ceremony  from the Cabinet Minister Yury Pavlenko and Kyiv Mayor Chernovetsky. The prize fund was provided by 30 companies and information partners; journalists from 50 newspapers, magazines, TV and radio stations were present at the ceremony.

The statuette which accompanied the prize was created by the prominent sculptor Mykola Ovchynnykov who designed the elegant statuette in such a way that it combines in itself the ancient traditions of representations of women in sculpture with modern ideas; the statuettes golden colour symbolizes success.
