Review for Maryland Womens Heritage Center And Museum Inc, Columbia, MD, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

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

Review for Maryland Womens Heritage Center And Museum Inc, Columbia, MD, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

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.

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.

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.

Role:  Volunteer & I have archived the many events on videotape. I produce the Her Story show. I shoot the Teen Scene show.
