Marin Women’s Hall of Fame

The Marin Women’s Hall of Fame publicly honors the achievements of Marin women, preserves their stories, educates the public and inspires the continued achievements of women and girls.

Nominations for the Class of 2025 will open in the summer

Sign up to be the first to know when Class of 2025 nominations open.

Nominate an inspiring woman who lives, works, or makes a direct impact in the Marin County community. 

Nominations are reviewed by an anonymous selection committee who determine the five women who will be inducted into the Hall of Fame each year. 

YWCA is proud to act as the stewards of the Marin Women’s Hall of Fame, and we celebrate the successes and growth of women’s contributions each year through community nominations and an Induction Ceremony for five phenomenal Marin women each year.

The Marin Women’s Hall of Fame was cofounded by the YWCA, AAUW, and the Marin Women’s Commission in 1987. Before the Marin Women’s Hall of Fame, virtually no records of women’s achievements had been recorded in Marin County. YWCA became the steward of the program in 2013, ensuring a legacy for future generations that documents not only successes, but also represents a diverse sisterhood of women supporting each other, standing together and moving the needle on progress for all women.


Join Hall of Fame Honorees, community leaders, friends, family, and Your YWCA for the Annual Induction Dinner and Celebration. The event is held in February.

Tickets and tables will be available for purchase in mid-November.
