The portraits of 48 outstanding Colorado women will be on display throughout the months of April and May in Lafayette at the Public Library, City Hall, and the GO! Center.
Lafayette is proud to present the Colorado Women's Hall of Fame exhibit to the public. The portraits and biographies of 48 extraordinary women are a testament to their passion, commitment, spirit, and willingness to stand tall in the face of obstacles. They were, and are, trailblazers, visionaries, women of courage, glass-ceiling breakers, innovators, and rule changers in all walks of life. Their contributions span Colorado's colorful and storied history, reach to its four corners, and have spread to touch our nation and our world.

About the Colorado Women’s Hall of Fame: The Colorado Women’s Hall of Fame was created to recognize, honor and preserve the contributions of trail-blazing Colorado women. Both historical and contemporary women have shared foresight, vision and accomplishment, but lacked a forum for recognition. Since 1985, the Hall has inducted 142 extraordinary women who have been outstanding in their field, elevated the status of women, helped open new frontiers for women or inspired others by their example. Inductees include scientists, teachers, social activists, philanthropists, authors, business leaders, elected officials and more. To view all 142 inductees, visit the website: www.cogreatwomen.org
