Iowa Women's Hall of Fame
The Iowa Women's Hall of Fame was established by the Iowa Commission on the Status of Women in 1975. The Hall of Fame recognizes Iowa women who have contributed their ideas, talents, and skills to making a significant impact on society. The Iowa Commission, established in 1972, is a state government agency that seeks to assure equality for Iowa women. Each year a five-member selection committee appointed by the Commission receives nominations for the Hall of Fame and selects four inductees. The four inductees are honored at a special ceremony hosted by the governor of Iowa at the State Historical Society in Des Moines.
