People from all over the country are in Seneca Falls this weekend. Ten groundbreaking women are being inducted into the National Women's Hall of Fame.

Efforts are also underway to relocate the hall and raise its profile.

“I'm surprised by how small it is,” said Maryann Erdosy of Philadelphia. “It deserves more recognition."

Sujatha Ramanjuan of Rochester agrees. She is also the co-chair of this year’s induction into the hall. She and a mostly all-volunteer group behind the hall are trying to get the word out about it.

“This needs more recognition. The women who have done what they’ve done for our nation as a whole deserve more recognition," Ramanjuan said.

Fundraising is underway to move the hall from its current location on Falls Street to the nearby Knitting Mill. It will have more room for the inductees which already number 266.

Ten more are being inducted this weekend in a ceremony Saturday.
