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.
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.
