All too often, when the history lessons are told, women are either missing or muted. The Connecticut Women’s Hall of Fame is committed to honoring women’s voices and learning about their values and perspectives first-hand. In line with our mission to preserve women’s stories, the CWHF’s Oral History Project shares our Inductees’ experiences in their own words. Click below to download recordings and transcripts of interviews with some of our Inductees. Moving forward, our goal is to expand the project to include conversations with as many Inductees as possible.
