This year’s Prix Monte-Carlo Woman of the Year award has gone to Demet Sabanci from Turkey for her efforts in persuading her government to create a ministry for the protection of children’s rights.

It is the third year of this international prize which recognises women who have a positive impact on the lives of others.

In second place this year was Monegasque Francien Giraudi, president and founder of the association Les Enfants des Franckie, for her long term support for children in the Maritime Alps region of France.
