A decade ago, the publisher and the editor of Mainebiz, both women, took a hard look at our pages and said, “Where are the women?” That question led to some soul searching and eventually to Women to Watch, an annual award given to female executives who are making an impact in the business world. Now, after 10 years, Mainebiz has honored 46 women, including this year's newest honorees. This issue includes profiles of this year's Women to Watch as well as a special insert commemorating all of the honorees from the past 10 years.
