Join us for the Inaugural Arkansas Women’s Hall of Fame Ceremony to be held on Thursday, August 27 at the Statehouse Convention Center, downtown Little Rock. Support the accomplishments and achievements of the women of Arkansas as we honor the historical impact they’ve made in our great state.
The goal of the Arkansas Women’s Hall of Fame (AWHF) is to honor, in perpetuity, women whose contributions have influenced the direction of Arkansas in their community or the state. The AWHF inducts contemporary (living) or historical (deceased) women who have been born in and achieved prominence within the state, or been a resident of Arkansas for an extended period after achieving prominence here or elsewhere and have:
Made significant and enduring contributions to their field of endeavor, professional or otherwise
Impacted the social, cultural, economic or political well-being of the community, state or nation
Elevated the status of women and positively impacted women and girls
Helped open new frontiers for women and for society in general
Inspired others by their example
The legacy of these great women should be shared and honored. The Arkansas Women’s Hall of Fame is dedicated to preserving the history of accomplishments and recognizing women across the state of Arkansas. It also provides women encouragement and inspiration from stories shared by these great women.
