SENECA FALLS, N.Y. - Women who played a major role in women's rights make history again, by getting inducted into the National Women's Hall of Fame.
Saturday, Seneca Falls welcomed nine women who were recognized for breaking down barriers and being leaders for women's rights.
Among those being inducted were House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi and former First Lady Betty Ford, who passed away in 2011.
"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 National Women's Hall of Fame Board Member Ellen Riddleberger.
Saturday's inductees joined 247 women in the Hall of Fame .
