The Women's Hall of Fame is an annual induction ceremony the recognizes five women from San Diego whose actions and accomplishments have visibly made a difference for women in the community. The five women honored every year will be remembered for their efforts in a Hall of Fame exhibit housed at the Women's Museum of California. The annual induction ceremony is also a forum for coalition building

between the four co-hosts and dozens of women's organizations representing San Diego's diverse population. HISTORY
In 2001, the four co-hosts of the San Diego County Women's Hall of Fame organized the first Hall of Fame event to honor and acknowledge women who have made outstanding volunteer contributions and significantly added to the quality of life in San Diego County. The purpose of the annual induction of women into the Hall of Fame is to make women's actions and accomplishments visible in San Diego. CO-HOSTS
The Women's Museum of California seeks to educate and inspire present and future generations about the experiences and contributions of women through collecting, preserving and interpreting the evidence of that experience. The museum also has an extensive reference library, archive and collection to assist in research throughout the community. The Commission on the Status of Women, established in 1975, studies and advises the Board of Supervisors on the needs and problems of women to eliminate the practice of discrimination and prejudice on the basis of gender. San Diego State University Department of Women's Studies, the nation's first women's studies department, established in 1970, offers a BA, MA and Post Baccalaureate Certificate. It has a reputation for excellence in curriculum, faculty, community involvement, and international scholarly liaisons. The Women's Center, University of California, San Diego provides education and support on gender issues affecting UCSD and general communities. The Center advances women's intellectual, professional, and personal goals to increase awareness of issues affecting women and men.
