Civil rights icon Angela Davis and U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor, and actress Jane Fonda were among the 11 women inducted recently into the National Women’s Hall of Fame, reports the Huffington Post. The inductees, all nominated by the public before being short-listed by a panel of experts based on their contributions in areas such as art, government and science, were honored at a ceremony in Seneca Falls, New York. Induction chairwoman Sujatha Ramanujan told the Associated Press that while the hall does not identify themes when calling for nominations, this year’s pool of nominees appeared to reflect the country’s sociopolitical mood. “It shows up in the nominations because we ask the general public — and in a time when women are feeling like their voices need to be heard, they’re nominating women whose voices were loud,” Ramanujan said. Speaking at the induction ceremony, Sotomayor, the first Latina justice on the country’s highest court, praised the “extraordinary” work of her fellow inductees. “[My] co-honorees have touched so many people,” she said. Accepting her award, Davis ― who has spent decades advocating for women’s and civil rights ― acknowledged the many other female leaders and activists who’d “enabled” her own activism and achievements. “At each significant turning point in my life, when I was introduced to the world of progressive political activism, anti-racist prison abolition struggles, when I myself was on the FBI’s 10 Most Wanted List and ended up spending two years in jail and on trial, when I became involved in many international solidarity efforts, intersectional feminist movements, I’ve always been one of many,” Davis said. “My own consciousness has been enabled and always by shared endeavors and collective consciousness.” The Women’s Hall of Fame hosts induction ceremonies every two years.
