The Ohio Women’s Hall of Fame

The Ohio Women’s Hall of Fame was founded in 1978 to honor and publicly recognize the outstanding contributions by Ohio’s women throughout the state’s history. The program was run by the State of Ohio until 2011, at which point it became inactive. The Ohioana Library held the physical archives until 2019 when the files were transferred to us at the State Archives in the Ohio History Center. The Ohio Department of Jobs and Family Services (JFS) previously compiled and maintained the online records of the Hall of Fame until the data was recently transferred to us as well.

About the Table (& How to Use It!)

All of the information and images, including information formatting, used in this table were received from JFS. In March 2019, JFS transferred the content to us. As of May 2019, we’ve made it available online to you!

You can browse the Women’s Hall of Fame by scrolling through the table. Data can be filtered in ascending or descending order and you can also type a name (full or otherwise), county, date or other keyword(s) to help you find a specific woman. Depending on your screen size, you may need to scroll sideways to see all of the data in the table.

Disclaimer: All of the biography text was written/compiled by JFS and is as it was on their online resource. As such, no changes can be made to the entries.
Images Disclaimer: All photographs were collected and donated to the Ohio History Connection by the Ohio Department of Jobs and Family Services. The Ohio History Connection is unable to provide high-resolution copies of the photographs.
