A deaf rights advocate, a tireless campaigner for reconciliation and a passionate educator in child abuse prevention were among 10 inductees welcomed into the WA Women's Hall of Fame on 8 March.

Supported by the Department of Local Government and Communities, the hall of fame recognises significant achievement and helps to strengthen the positive profile of Western Australian women.

The event held on International Women's Day was attended by Deputy Premier and Women's Interests Minister Liza Harvey.

In 2012 a roll of honour was created to acknowledge the outstanding efforts of women who have passed away. Inductees this year included Sister Mary Martin Kelly, who was dedicated to providing support and relief for children and families, and Melvina Alice Rowley for her work with Aboriginal people.
