This year, three very deserving ladies -June Field, Cyndy Violette, and Jan Fisher- will join Linda Johnson, Marsha Waggoner, Susie Isaacs and Barbara Enright as women who have made outstanding contributions to poker.
June Field was the founder of every-one's favorite poker publication, CardPlayer Magazine. June also founded Poker Digest (which has since merged with Casino Player Magazine).
At the top of Cyndy Violette's resume is a 2004 WSOP Stud 8 bracelet, but the resume certainly doesn't end there. The Full Tilt sponsored professional has made numerous WSOP final tables, and appeared on such shows as Poker Superstars. Cyndy currently splits her time between major tournaments and high stakes cash games, as well as owning her own line of poker-inspired clothing and motivational products.
Industry icon and member of the board of directors for the Poker Players Alliance, Jan Fisher was also a co-founder of the Tournament Directors’ Association. Jan also sits on the board of directors for the Ladies Poker Association and LIPS Tour. Fisher first gained notoriety as a columnist for Poker Player Magazine.

MJ, if you look at the selections it's pretty obvious they are inducting the 'older' women first. Jen and Kathy's time will come, but right now they are making up for lost time by getting the pioneering women in.
And I would say that the founder of two of the largest poker publications should be a no-brainer, as well as Jan Fisher. Cyndy is mainly a player, but its hard to argue with her being selected (I think she was the second woman to win an open event at the WSOP, and she had 3 final tables in 2005).
One more thing, Annette?????? Are you kidding me
