Our Mission


The National Women’s Hall of Fame is a nonprofit organization committed to engaging every generation in celebrating the achievements of women who change the world. The Hall elevates women’s voices, equips and empowers changemakers, and advances gender equity through action, education, and storytelling. 

We are achieving our mission in a variety of ways while preserving our historical roots through the induction of great women into the Hall of Fame. Our comprehensive programming and beautiful museum on the banks of the Cayuga-Seneca Canal provide the public with several ways to become engaged with the Hall and the stories of our exceptional Inductees.

The National Women’s Hall of Fame is at a dynamic evolutionary place in its history. We are excited about its potential, but most excited about the expansiveness of our vision and its anticipated impact for people of all ages, genders, and locations – now and for generations to come.
