The medal's obverse depicts the left-quarter profile of Frances Elizabeth Willard, an American educator, temperance reformer, and suffragist. Its reverse design features a woman holding a Christian cross in her proper right hand. In her proper left, she holds the arm of a weary male figure who is clothed only in a small cloth. He holds a walking stick in his proper left hand. The logo for the Woman's Christian Temperance Union and a star are centered between the two figures.
