The fight for suffrage impelled some women from varying communities into the public arena. These women demanded their full rights as citizens and positioned themselves as candidates and legislators making American democracy a complete reality. Maryland Women figured prominently from Margaret Brent to Margaret Hawkins to Adrienne Jones, continuing to Dr. Ida Jones, (pictured here), Morgan State University Archivist and MWHC Board of Directors. There has never been a time in history when telling the stories about women who have impacted our history wasn't important. Please help the Maryland Women's Heritage Center ensure these important stories are told and shared. If you have not already, check out the many stories of Maryland Women and their contributions. https://ballotandbeyond.org/ - MWHC is dedicated to adding "HERstory to history to tell OURstory".
