Iowa Women's Hall of Fame

Not enough people are aware of the extent of Women's contributions to society, whether past or present. To highlight Women's heritage and recognize their contributions, the Iowa Commission on the Status of Women (ICSW) established the Iowa Women's Hall of Fame in 1975. Each year the ICSW and the Governor welcome four women into the Hall of Fame, paying tribute to them and setting them forth as role models for others.
