Specially thanks to Dr. Amy Rosenkrans for all her efforts to bring this day to fruition and to the William G. Pomeroy Foundation for providing funding for marker.

Happy #InternationalWomenDay! This years theme is #ChoosetoChallenge.

"A challenged world is an alert world. Individually, we're all responsible for our own thoughts and actions - all day, every day. We can all choose to challenge and call out gender bias and inequality. We can all choose to seek out and celebrate women's achievements. Collectively, we can all help create an inclusive world. From challenge comes change, so let's all choose to challenge."

#TDIH August 18, 1920, the Nineteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution is ratified giving women the right to vote. Maryland women, such as Edith Houghton Ho**er , were active in the suffrage movement. In 1912, Ho**er established the Maryland Suffrage News, a weekly newspaper and in 1917, she was invited to become the editor of The Suffragist, the weekly newspaper of the National Woman's Party led by Alice Paul . Edith Houghton Ho**er was posthumously inducted into the Maryland Women's Hall of Fame in 1999. The song “Mother Mends” pays tribute to the Maryland suffragist and her efforts to make voting for women a reality.
