Also honored is Elouise Pepion Cobell, a champion of Native American financial empowerment.

Headquartered in Seneca Falls, New York, the National Women’s Hall of Fame is committed to amplifying women's voices, fostering changemakers, and promoting gender equity. The induction ceremony, slated for next year, will be held in New York City, marking another milestone in honoring the legacies of extraordinary American women.
