2015 Nominations Open

2015 nominations now open for the Tennessee Women's Hall of Fame. Full instructions available at http://www.tennesseewomen.org/twhof.htm. Nomination submissions due by July 31, 2015. The 2015 TWHOF Induction will be held at the 12th Annual Economic Summit for Women in partnership with the Vision 2020 National Delegate Congress on Monday, October 26, at the Nashville Airport Marriott.

The purpose of the Tennessee Women's Hall of Fame is to recognize and honor women who are exceptionally accomplished and have made outstanding, unique and lasting contributions to the economic, political, cultural well-being of Tennessee. These women have individually elevated the status of women and championed other women, women's issues, and served as advocates for issues important to women and families.

On October 17, 2010, the Tennessee Economic Council on Women officially inducted the first two members into the Tennessee Women's Hall of Fame; Jane Eskind and Martha Craig Daughtrey. The third member to be inducted was Pat Summitt June 17, 2011. Six more extraordinary women were inducted October 28, 2013.
