SENECA FALLS, N.Y. (AP) - House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi, the late former first lady Betty Ford and Title IX advocate Bernice Sandler are among the newest inductees into the National Women's Hall of Fame.
The ceremony is scheduled for Saturday in Seneca Falls, the western New York village where the first known women's rights convention was held in 1848.
Other members of the class of 2013 are jockey Julie Krone; "Sexual Politics" author Kate Millett; midwife Ina May Gaskin; Maryknoll Sisters founder Mother Mary Joseph Rogers; monetary scholar Anna Jacobson Schwartz; and 19th-century educator Emma Hart Willard.
The Hall of Fame says Pelosi, Sandler, Gaskin, Krone and Millett will attend. Ford's daughter, Susan Ford Bales, plans to represent her mother, who died in 2011.
