Created in 1970 at Judson College to honor the women of Alabama, the Alabama Women's Hall of Fame, located at the University of West Alabama in Livingston, houses the plaques of almost 100 women who have been inducted into the AWHF. Those honored include writers, artists, educators, lawyers, businesswomen, nurses, missionaries, volunteers, social workers, and social movers and shakers. The Board of the AWHF chooses up to two women for induction each year. The induction takes place the first Thursday in March. Women who were born, lived in, and/or contributed to the betterment of Alabama, and have been deceased for two years, are eligible for nomination.
