Maryland women's Heritage Center has heart and soul and touches all age groups to educate and connect and tell her story to add to his-tory. more

August 29, 2013

This is a nurturing non-profit that has heart, intelligence and open to everyone who cares about women's role in history and its's leadership today. It is inclusive and over the years of my engagement I have seen it grow in depth and promise for future generations.

It is not so much the changes, but with more financial support it could do the big picture things it aspires to doing as it keeps its focus also on the relationships that it fosters.

The Maryland Women's Heritage Center is a unique place that brings women from across the state to gather and support the mission and also be part of the evolving history of women. I believe there is something for everyone, especially, men and young boys, who are welcome to learn and to honor the women in their lives as well. The MWHC is an open and welcoming place for children to senior adults to learn and become more knowledgeable about some extraordinary women and to find the extraordinary in themselves. Together, we can grow this organization and serve the community through its program and vision. It may need more financial support, which non-profit does not, but it does not lack heart or support for all women to be the best they can be and find where they can get involved.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I have met some women I would not have if I have not been involved. I have learned more about the women who came before us..their struggles and deeds. I have been able to honor my "unsung heroine" and enjoy the "can do" spirit of the women involved.

Having the pleasure of working with the powerful and passionate folks associated with the MWHC for the past six years, imparts a love of women's history and a never ending devotion for the present and future for the women of Maryland and beyond. The staff and volunteers maintain exciting
exhibits and programs as well as constantly upgrading and improving them. Future events, programs and community outreach is forever on our calendars as is creating new fundraising campaigns. The MWHC, first of its kind in the nation serves as a model for other states, and is committed to education and inspiration to all those that visit the Center in person, attend an event or program or take some well spent time and visit our website www.mdwomensheritagecenter.org

As a member of the development committee and Administrator for the Maryland Women's Heritage Center, I am honored to be able to work alongside the most dedicated, passionate and professional people in the world. Everyone involved in creating this, first of its kind, Center and Museum is committed to establishing the first comprehensive state-based center and museum of its kind in the nation. The mission of the Maryland Women’s Heritage Center is to preserve the past, understand the present, and shape the future by recognizing, respecting, and transmitting the experiences and contributions of Maryland women and girls of diverse backgrounds and regions.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Since my association with the Maryland Women's Heritage Center & Museum began back in 2007, my knowledge of Maryland women's historic and present day contributions has increased 100 fold. The history I didn't learn in school, I'm learning now.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Raise enough funds to move the Center into larger, permanent quarters and to have enough display space to house all of our historical treasures.

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

My ability to be on the ground-floor of helping to create this exciting and much needed Center and Museum.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Educated, passionate, proud and caring about what they do, in whatever capacity they serve, the MWHC&M.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Pursue its mission to build a larger facility to accomodate more meeting space, a performance & art venue, space for all artifacts, documents representing Maryland Women's history

Ways to make it better...

My only wish is that the MWHC&M continues its mission of educating, displaying and being a bigger and better historical resource future generations.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Space required to allow for growth and much needed operating funds.

One thing I'd also say is that...

The MWHC&M model is a program that every state in the U.S. should replicate. Every state has a history of women that have not been recognized for all their service and their many untold contributions on behalf of their home state.

The MD Women's Heritage Center continues to expand its partner/collaboration base in order to promote greater community awareness and support. This year in collaboration with Enoch Pratt Library, MWHC provided the Baltimore premier of "Breaking Thru the Clouds", a documentary film created and produced my MD filmmaker, Heather Taylor. This film shared the stories of many early women pilots who have not had their contributions told.

Additionally, the MD Space Business Roundtable again provided the MWHC with a mini grant to continue the educational and career exploration activities related to learning about STEM careers and increasing the number of women pursuing those opportunities.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Greater public awareness and financial support.

We have been excited to have such great partners and supporters as the MD Space Business Roundtable and the Women of Goddard....as we have promoted women in STEM careeres and their contributions. Additionally, to learn so much about the women of WW II was astounding!!! I did not know we had this many living legends still with us in MD. Fortunately, they were captured on video to share HER story with future students and adults.

Kudos to Jill and Linda for having their dreams realized. They were among the fore runners of Title IX and have kept the torch buring for 40 years. Their vision a place were women can go and feel at home; to feel that it belongs to them and they have worked hard to create that atmosphere while addressing and representing some of the unsung heroines from the present as well as the past. Exhibits and programs galore, partnerships with needed women's focused organizations including the girl scouts. Kidgineers in the Korner and Kid friendly spots thoughout. I am proud to be a part of it and shoot the Teen Scene Show there another example of how they reach out to all. And occasionally we do let men in, as Jill says as long as they have a mother lol. Keep the torch burning and always ready to pass on. LG

The motto of the Maryland Women's Heritage Center is "Adding Her story to History to tell Our story." The walls and every inch of usable space at the center are intergrated to make that a reality. In recording and archiving the many great women who paved the roads that lead to Maryland with time, talent, ingenuity and class it is definitely correcting history to tell our story and their story.

These women are the unsung heroines that we need to hail near and far. This is the rib of Adam that followed humbly behind in times when women had no rights. The brave feminine brigade always at the front line and crossroads of America.


From the Hall of Fame, to the Unsung Heroines, to the many organizations supported and promoted by the Maryland Women's Heritage Center not a stone is left unturned. To the promotions of girlscouts into the future aviators of the world or the tremendous woman power behind Nasa you will be overwhelmed with the truth of the corageous woman who went before us and continue to drive us now.

And while many women support and are behind this organization it is to it's founding mothers, Jill Moss Greenberg and Linda Shevitz that we owe it's very existence. They have persevered for many years when the message fell on deaf ears till they were unclogged and the cause was heard.

They are the nurturing and patient founding mother's that can now be proud of the birthing of their baby which was the dream of so many women into existence. An organization that is sorely needed.

Come down and make their new home you home. Wonder among the Walls of the Hall of Fame. Peruse the many exhibits and displays that tell the truth of the woman of Maryland from Margaret Brent and Rachel Carson to Harriet Tubman brave women all. I have been proud to be associated with this organization and will do all I can to promote it and encourage other women to remember their sisters and sing their praises.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Making new contacts, learning about the plight and struggles of other women. Understanding women in a way I hadn't thought of before. In shooting the Teen Scene which focuses on the hundreds of women represented in the center it is exhilarating to introduce these new young women to women they had never heard of before. I get to experience it first hand and it is a joy.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Encourage all women (and men) to support and contribute to this organization so we can expand the walls to include even more.

The Maryland Women's Heritage Center, a strong non-profit, honors so many individuals and groups of women by Adding HERstory to HIStory to tell OUR story . It brings together community members and educators and families and organizations to commemorate the contributions of women and girls of the past and present (and future). Many programs recently have involved diverse multicultural participants of a wide range of ages -- from elementary school and Girl Scouts to Red Hats and World War II Veterans. and Rosie the Riveters So much is learned and shared, and resources are available to learn about the Unsung Heroines in our lies, as well as the more "famous" women. The current displays focus women in science, technology, engineering and mathematics, and expand our horizons and present outstanding role models! role models. As an educator and women's history and equity advocate, I highly value all that the Center offers and provides.

The Maryland Women's Heritage Center provides and invaluable service to the State of Maryland by serving as a focus for women to expand their horizons. This year, in partnership with NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center, they have provided many young women with examples of the many opportunities available in STEM careers. We need to increase the number of women in STEM careers and this partnership has provided a very effective model for that stimulus.

What a treasure to have the Maryland Women's Heritage Center as a part of our community - sharing the stories about real women making real differences and making sure that young women have a vision as to what they can bring to the world. My radio show in Baltimore, WomanTalk Live, is proud to be a partner with the Maryland Women's Heritage Center to ensure that the stories of women from the past, present and future are honored and shared.

I've been involved with the Maryland Women's Heritage Center for the past 4 years. I have a local talk radio show in Baltimore and the MWHC supplies me with "women in history tidbits" for me to use on the show, in my weekly newsletter and in my social media campaigns. Getting the word out about the women who came before us, their accomplishments, and the roads they paved for us is important to me and the MWHC is committed to telling the story of women and keeping their stories alive. What an incredible service they provide for our state.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

many ways - through the programs they offer, the museum resources and the pleasure of working with women associated with the center in various community and state initiatives.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

have them grow larger and have the funding to expand their outreach. They are THAT important.

I was so excited about the Maryland Women's Heritage Center from the moment I first heard about it. It's no secret that notable women in history have not occupied a lot of time in our educational process - and, this is something the MWHC wants to change. And, not only are they highlighting the famous women - I love the fact that they are recognizing the "unsung heroines" - the women that have made a difference that many people never hear about. One of the things that I do on my radio show, WomanTalk Live, is recognize a young woman (jr or sr in high school in Maryland) each year who is making a big difference in her community and has a vision for making a difference in the future. The MWHC has recognized the value of these young women, also, and features their photos, their winning essays and their bios, on the MWHC website and also at the museum center in the Unsung Heroine section. All in all, I am thrilled to be able to support this organization and the important work it is doing, and I am so proud to say that Maryland has the first center of its kind in the nation with the Maryland Women's Heritage Center.

This Center's exhibits of Rachel Carson and hundreds of other women from Maryland who made history are such a source of inspiration for people of all ages. The Center's recently held "YOUth Can Make a Difference for Girls' Rights! Celebrate the first International Day of the Girl" recognized the successful campaign led by Maryland girls between 11-20 years of age who mobilized U.S. support for this new United Nations annual girls' rights day. This Center--the first in the country--serves as a superb model for museums in other states.
