PHOENIX — Cindy McCain is one of eight women who will be inducted into the Arizona Women’s Hall of Fame later this year.

McCain and the other honorees will be inducted in a ceremony on May 1 at the Arizona Heritage Center in Tempe.

The honorees were selected for their contributions in community service, business, arts and the law.

McCain is the board chair of the McCain Institute and co-chair of the Arizona Governor’s Council on Human Trafficking.

She has been a leading voice for human trafficking awareness, especially since the death of her husband, former Arizona Senator John McCain, in August 2018.

Other inductees include Barbara Rodriguez Mundell, the first female and first Hispanic to be selected as Presiding Judge of the Maricopa County Superior Court, and co-founder of real estate firm Plaza Companies, Sharon Harper.

We want to hear from you.
