Women’s Hall of Fame induction won’t be televised due to ‘unforeseen developments’

The National Women’s Hall of Fame announced a significant change for its 2024 induction ceremony, initially slated for national television broadcast on Oprah’s TV network.

Due to ‘unforeseen developments’, the event will no longer air as planned. Instead, the organization says the event will be recorded, then released later in the month on a streaming platform.

Expressing disappointment, Jennifer Gabriel, Chief Executive Officer of the National Women’s Hall of Fame, shared the news with the community. Gabriel thanked the Hall’s supporters for their continued inspiration and commitment to overcoming challenges.


Full Statement from National Women’s Hall of Fame

To our National Women’s Hall of Fame community,  

This is not a message I ever imagined having to write—but I know that I am among the strongest of comrades as I deliver this disappointing message:  

Despite our very best efforts and previous announcements, the National Women’s Hall of Fame 2024 Induction Ceremony will no longer be televised nationally due to developments beyond our control.  

While the Ceremony will no longer be available via primetime broadcast, the Hall’s team is pivoting quickly to film the Ceremony and deliver it via streaming later in March.  

When we first learned of the opportunity to amplify the achievements of our Inductees, we couldn’t have imagined a better platform for their stories.  

Nevertheless, we remain—perhaps, even more-so—committed to delivering on our promise to grow the Hall’s reach from thousands to millions, and to engaging every generation in celebrating the achievements of women who have changed the world.  

Thank you to all of our stakeholders, members, Inductees, and friends of the Hall for continuing to serve as inspiration to persist, to overcome barriers, and to keep pushing forward in the hopes of making lasting, positive change for our world.  

In solidarity,
Jennifer Gabriel 
Chief Executive Officer
