The Governor's Commission for Women established the Texas Women's Hall of Fame in 1984 to honor the State's most accomplished women. Inductees include first ladies, teachers, astronauts, and athletes.
Biennial Awards Ceremony
The Texas Women's Hall of Fame biennial awards ceremony recognizes the achievements of women. Texas residents submit nominations and a bi-partisan, independent panel of judges selects the recipients who will be inducted into the Hall of Fame.
In March of 2003, the Governor's Commission for Women established the permanent Texas Women's Hall of Fame exhibit featuring the biographies and photographs of the 146 recipients. We invite you to visit the exhibit, which is located inside Hubbard Hall on the campus of Texas Woman's University in Denton, Texas.
The Governor's Commission for Women would like to thank Texas Woman's University for developing the Hall of Fame website and for hosting the permanent exhibit on their campus in Denton.
