The 2018 Women's Hall of Fame induction ceremony was held on Friday, March 9th at Austin City Hall.
The 2018 inductees are Gigi Edwards Bryant, Jeanne Goka, Celia Israel, and Sarah Weddington.
All honorees in the Austin Women’s Hall of Fame have made significant contributions for women in the Austin area and beyond by breaking through barriers for women, working to better the lives of women and girls, and providing outstanding public or community service.
