Maryland Women’s Heritage Center holds first open house in new home at the former Woman’s Industrial Exchange

Women’s Equality Day 2021: Welcome to our new home!

To celebrate Women’s Equality Day (WED) 2021, MWHC held an inaugural open house at our new event space, located in the Marian House/Woman’s Industrial Exchange building in the historic Mt. Vernon neighborhood.

WED is observed every August 26th to commemorate the passage of women’s suffrage in the U.S. We remember the heroic women, including many in Baltimore, who faced violence and discrimination in the fight for women’s voting rights. 

The agenda included tours, a citation from the Maryland Women’s Caucus and presentation of certificates of appreciation to MWHC volunteers who contributed to the award-winning Ballots & Beyond podcast series, produced in collaboration with Preservation Maryland.
