The women of the MWHC walk the talk of their mission. They were some of the most supportive and collaborative women that I dealt with as I searched for ways to get the word out about my documentary Breaking Through the Clouds: The First Women's National Air derby. They sprung into action and created a screening for the film at Baltimore's Enoch Pratt.

It was with a sense of true community that the women brought me into their folds and shared the mission of celebrating inspiring stories of women. I can not say enough about how well I was treated, how their passion blended with mine over our mutual goals and how we were able to move actions forward together, while maintaining respect and having fun along the way.

Find a way to help them receive more of a presence with social media for various postings about their events, mission and goals. Like most non-profits, it's tough when the organization is mostly run by volunteers.

The Maryland Women's Heritage Center grew out of the educational Maryland Women's History Project, which provided materials every year to classroom teachers, libraries, and community members about both historical and contemporary women who are generally left out of textbooks and the media. Topics included women in math and science, women in the arts, women in law and government, girls and young women as leaders, and women activists in areas such as suffrage and civil and human rights. The Heritage Center houses the Maryland Women's Hall of Fame, with panels and photos of more than 100 women leaders. Previously, the Hall of Fame was nothing more than a single plaque with the women's names that was housed in a law building in Annapolis. No one really had access or learned anything about these women's accomplishments, other than seeing their names. the Center also has a wonderful, comprehensive timeline about leaders in women's and civil rights, beginning with the Piscataway women who first inhabited the land that is now Maryland. There is a children's corner with activities. Perhaps most important, the Center features an Unsung Heroines Gallery, where women who shape our families, organizations, and communities are recognized for contributions that would go unknown. It is not just "famous" women who make a difference, but all women, who are often "unsung."

The Great!

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

In the classrooms and schools where I have taught and now teach, I am constanly reminded of how little students know about women's history. the Center shares resources, answers questions, and provides information about where to find out more.
