Saturday was a historic day in Seneca Falls, as nine women were inducted into the National Women's Hall of Fame.
The women were recognized for breaking down barriers and being leaders for women's rights.
Those inducted were House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi, former First Lady Betty Ford, Ina May Gaskin, Julie Krone, Kate Millett, Mother Mary Joseph Rogers, Bernice Resnick Sandler, Anna Jacobson Schwartz and Emma Hart Willard.
All inductees were selected by a National Judges Panel.
"It's a completely democratic nomination process, anybody from across the country can nominate a woman they feel is worthy to be in the hall. What we look for in characteristics for inductees are woman who have done something great in their life or a first," said Ellen Riddleberger, National Women's Hall of Fame Board Member.
Saturday's inductees joined 247 women in the Hall of Fame .
