Michelle Obama Among 2021 Women’s Hall of Fame Inductees

Former first lady Michelle Obama is set for induction this fall into the National Women’s Hall of Fame.

The Oct. 2 ceremony at the Hall headquarters in Seneca Falls, New York, will celebrate Obama, 57, as “one of the most influential and iconic women of the 21st century,” the organization said.

“Both in and out of the White House, Michelle Obama has accomplished her initiatives and so much more — becoming an advocate for healthy families, service members and their families, higher education, international adolescent girls’ education, and serving as a role model for women and young girls everywhere,” the Hall of Fame said.

Among those joining Obama in this year’s nine-member class are Brig. Gen. Rebecca Halstead, the first woman to command combat in Iraq, late NASA mathematician Katherine Johnson, late author Octavia Butler and abolitionist Emily Howland.

The free event will be streamed live.
