Writing Women Into History - Founded 1987
Throughout its rich history, Marin county has been the home of many
outstanding women as diverse as its vistas.
In 1987, a group of women founded the Marin Women's Hall of Fame with
the mission to discover and honor women in our community who serve as
role models and demonstrate excellence in a wide range of endeavors. The
Marin Women's Hall of Fame was the first organization in Marin County
to recognize the achievements and contributions made by its extraordinary
women citizens. These are the women leaders who have devoted their lives
to excellence. They have made such a significant contribution to the overall
well-being of our county and its residents; the life, culture, mores and even
In March, during Women's History Month, an annual dinner is held to
celebrate our Honorees.. Throughout the year the Board of Directors of the
Marin Women's Hall of Fame prepares videotaped histories, compiles
biographies and commissions photographic portraits of all the honorees.
Honorees include local luminaries as well as many lesser known women
accomplishments are no less remarkable. Throughout all the years
accomplishments in Marin that has affected people locally, nationally and globally.
In addition to honoring these notable women of Marin, the Women's Hall of
Fame also seeks to "write women back into history" by creating and making
available the biographies which spotlight accomplishments usually ignored
by the media. The Hall of Fame works to integrate such important history and
history-in-the-making. The goal is to make HERstory...not just read about it.
