Polish Women's Hall of Fame
Piast Institute's project Polish Women's Hall of Fame
 

Polish women have long had a reputation for beauty, intelligence, and courage. Poland herself has appeared in iconography, especially in the Romantic era, as a woman bravely suffering oppression, defying her tormentors or grieving her sons and daughters. People call to mind Queen Jadwiga, the legendary Princess Wanda or the brilliant Marie Sklodowska-Curie when Polish women are mentioned. But the full story of their accomplishments finds almost no place in the popular history of Poland. Yet, it is a rich, inspiring and complex story that gives us new perspectives on the history of Poland and Polish communities throughout the world. We can never fully understand who we are until we join the histories of our mothers to that of our fathers. Polish Women's Hall of Fame

It is for this reason that the Piast Institute founded the Polish Women's Hall of Fame as a record of the story of Polish Women.
