    The National Women’s Hall of Fame founded in 1969 by the residents of Seneca Falls, which believed that their hometown, the birthplace of women’s rights, is the appropriate place to establish an institute that commemorates the contributions of American women. Their mission was to inspire people and motivate them to take action and make a change.

By reading the plaques covering the hall’s walls, you can find out how women like Susan B. Anthony, Maya Angelou, and Ruth Bader Ginsburg changed society.
