KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) – Former first daughter Chelsea Clinton helped the University of Missouri-Kansas City launch a new women’s hall of fame.

The Starr Women’s Hall of Fame will recognize women from the Kansas City area and preserve the legacy of their accomplishments. The site is named for the late Kansas City philanthropist Martha Jane Phillips Starr.

Clinton said at an event Monday in Kansas City that hall of fame will help young girls close the gap between what they aspire to and what’s possible.

The Kansas City Star (http://bit.ly/1eqzeEQ ) reports the first class won’t be inducted into the hall until the fall.

Chelsea Clinton works with her parents, former President Bill Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, as vice chair of the Clinton Foundation.
