Women! The driving force behind the Women’s Yellow Pages of Greater Philadelphia is Ellen Fisher. She is the founder and publisher of the directory and a well-known, well-respected business woman. Twenty years ago Ellen saw what very few people could see— women-owned businesses would become a powerful economic force of the future. When the first edition of the Women's Yellow Pages of Greater Philadelphia hit the street, Ellen was met with everything from polite laughter to outright disbelief. Today, the Women's Yellow Pages of Greater Philadelphia is the largest and most widely read directory of women-owned businesses in the tri-state area. It has grown from a local telephone directory to an international business network connecting women to each other and to the world. The Women's Regional Publications of America recognized Ellen for her dedication and achievement by presenting her with the "Lifetime Advocate for Women’s Business" award. Recently, Ellen was recognized as one of PA's 2003 Best 50 Women in Business.
