About the National Women’s Hall of Fame
The National Women’s Hall of Fame (NWHF) is the nation’s oldest membership organization dedicated to recognizing and celebrating the achievements of great American women. It was created in 1969 in Seneca Falls, the birthplace of the American Women’s Rights Movement by a group of local women and men who believe that the contributions of American women deserved a permanent home in the small village where the fight for women’s rights began. The NWHF, a 501(c)(3), not-for-profit organization, is located in the heart of downtown Seneca Falls, NY.
