ROH had its first women's match on June 22, 2002 at its Road to the Title show. It saw Sumie Sakai defeat Simply Luscious. Women's wrestling in ROH had been sporadic since then. ROH featured female stars like Sara Del Rey, Daizee Haze, and others on shows, even releasing a DVD featuring Del Rey, Haze, Amazing Kong, Mickie James, MsChif, Lacey, and others. Some of these matches were featured on ROH's television program on HDNet and, later, on its syndicated show, but ROH did not consistently brand women's matches as Women of Honor until 2015.
The popularity of women in Ring of Honor has resulted in Ring of Honor taping a pilot for a standalone Women of Honor program. Ring of Honor has also made numerous Women of Honor branded merchandise available for purchase. The pilot aired as a Women of Honor-branded television special the weekend of June 25, 2016 and its success led to a Women of Honor taping that is available on DVD.
Currently, Ring of Honor regularly airs and promotes Women of Honor matches on their YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter platforms. As of June 2018, the only two videos to receive 3 million or more views on Ring of Honor's YouTube page are Women of Honor matches, both featuring regular Women of Honor competitor, "The Gatekeeper" Kelly Klein.
Matches are called and presented by Ian Riccaboni. He has been joined by Taeler Hendrix, Mandy Leon, Veda Scott, Matt Taven and B.J. Whitmer for YouTube exclusives and Nigel McGuinness for the two Women of Honor television specials.
So far there have been three televised specials.
