The Maryland Women's Heritage Center is the best place to learn about all the wonderful women of Maryland from the unsung heroines to the inductees in the Maryland Women's Hall of Fame.

I have been involved with the Maryland Women's Heritage Center since its inception. The goal was and is to provide programs that are educational, enlightening and entertaining. When visitors arrive they find a site that is welcoming and staff that is there to help answer questions and encourage them to share their stories of women who made a difference in their lives.

The Great!

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

As a volunteer staff person it is a joy to see people / visitor open up and share stories of the women in their lives; sharing their memories of how life was when they were young woman. These are stories that need to be heard and told.

Ways to make it better...

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

The one area is with in-house exhibits - In the zeal to put up an exhibit - too much is jammed into the exhibit that is using images and front size that is too small. The overall exhibit looks more like a collage and makes the experience overwhelming.

More feedback...

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

The friendliness and openess of the staff and site.

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

Friendly, informative and encourage visitors to share memories, experiences and stories of women they have known.

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

1. Expand to a bigger facility 2. Have a full-time paid staff 3. Create multiply educational program experiences 4. Have a facility to have multiple events.

Ways to make it better...

Currently, the exhibits are not as interactive as they could be.

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

Fund raising

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

Every man, woman and child needs to learn the contributions and history that women have been a part of.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every week

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.
