Welcome to the website for the Plaza of Heroines, a mosaic of bricks and granite pavers that forms the entryway to Carrie Chapman Catt Hall on Iowa State's central campus. The plaza honors more than 3,800 women and organizations who have made an impact on individuals, families, communities and society.

To honor a woman on the Plaza of Heroines, submit an order today or contact the Carrie Chapman Catt Center for Women and Politics at cattcntr@iastate.edu for more information. Bricks and pavers are added to the plaza in the spring and fall.

To update the profile of a woman you have previously honored on the plaza, email your changes/additions to the Catt Center at cattcntr@iastate.edu.
