History of the Oklahoma Women’s Hall of Fame

The Oklahoma Women's Hall of Fame was created in 1982 by then-Governor George Nigh to honor Oklahoma women who are 
pioneers in their field or in projects that benefit Oklahoma; who have made a significant contribution to the State of Oklahoma; 
who serve or have served as role models to other Oklahoma women; who may be "unsung heroes," but have made a difference 
in the lives of Oklahomans or Americans because of their actions; who have championed other women, women's issues, or 
served as public policy advocates for the issues important to women; and who exemplify the Oklahoma spirit. Ninety-six women have
been previously inducted into the Oklahoma Women's Hall of Fame.
