The Maryland Women’s Heritage Center (MWHC) is the only organization in the state and one of the few in the country completely devoted to telling and preserving women’s stories.

We do this with exhibits, events and online features that celebrate Maryland women’s, past and present, and their contributions in education, politics, science, community activism, the arts, the military, business and all the other ways that women change our world for the better. 

Our board of directors, executive director and volunteers serve as resources to other organizations and museums on a state and national level for consultation and collaboration due to our wide range of women’s history knowledge. 

In short, we “add HERStory to history to tell OURstory.”

Support us by attending events, volunteering and donating. 

Do you know a woman  past or present, who is making a difference? Tell us!
