Mission Statement

The Connecticut Women’s Hall of Fame honors the achievements of women by celebrating their legacies and telling their powerful stories, inspiring women and girls to realize their own limitless potential. As the state’s premier resource for Connecticut women’s history, we accomplish our mission through education and community outreach programs for both students and adults.

Description

The Connecticut Women’s Hall of Fame (CWHF) is the state’s premier educational resource for Connecticut women’s history. Founded in 1994, the organization sought to honor distinguished contributions by female role models associated with Connecticut. The first list of inductees contained forty-one women notable to Connecticut's history and culture, many of whom broke down barriers by becoming the first women to establish themselves in fields that had been previously denied to their gender. Today, the CWHF celebrates Connecticut women from a variety of fields whose work inspires change, innovation, and progress for the benefit of our local, national, and world-wide communities.

At the Connecticut Women’s Hall of Fame, we envision a future unbound by stereotyped expectations...

  • where women are seen and celebrated for their multiple identities
  • where youth are inwardly and outwardly unlimited in what they can accomplish
  • where women and men are valued, compensated, and represented equally in every aspect of life, from household roles to professional roles, and in our educational, legal, economic, and social systems.

We envision a culture and worldview that are balanced and healthy for all, based on the principles of equity, inclusion, racial justice, and mutual respect.
