Established in 1987, the Marin Women’s Hall of Fame (MWHF) has a mission to publicly honor achievements of Marin women, preserve their stories, educate the public and inspire the continued achievements of women and girls. To date, nearly 150 women of distinction have been honored, including U.S. Senator Barbara Boxer, filmmaker and activist Jennifer Siebel Newsom, Nepal Youth Foundation Founder Olga Murray, Hannah Project Partnership for Academic Achievement Founder and CEO Bettie Hodges, and Marin Agricultural Land Trust Co-Founder and Chair Phyllis Faber. To see the full list of honorees, click here.

Nominate an Outstanding Marin Woman!

The Marin Women's Hall of Fame relies on the community to suggest potential inductees! Nominees must reside in Marin County, and their achievements should reflect a unique contribution to the county, state, nation and/or beyond. The selected inductees will be announced in December of 2015, and our annual induction dinner and public celebration will be held on Thursday March 31, 2016 at the Peacock Gap.
