Texas Women’s Hall of Fame

Governor’s Mansion in Austin, Texas
The Texas Women’s Hall of Fame is presented by the Governor’s Commission for Women Biennially (even years). The Governor’s Commission for Women established the Texas Women’s Hall of Fame in 1984 to honor the State’s most accomplished women. The Hall of Fame recognizes Women from and/or in Texas whose contributions have improved Texas and their particular discipline, field or profession. The Hall of Fame has various categories: art, community service, education, leadership, health, science and business.

Every other year, the Texas Women’s Hall of Fame award ceremony recognizes the achievements of women selected for induction. Texas residents submit nominations and a bi-partisan, independent panel of judges selects the recipients who will be inducted. The Texas Women’s Hall of Fame permanent exhibit is located at the Texas Woman’s University Denton Campus. The exhibit features the biographies and photographs of the more than 100 pioneering women who have left their mark on the great state of Texas.
