The Women’s Centennial Summit
focused both on women's leadership and on commemorating the
100th anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.
The Summit featured prominent women leaders in our state as speakers.
During the Summit, we recognized 100 heroines,
women and girls, residents of the State of Maryland,
who have made significant contributions to the fight against
the COVID-19 pandemic and racial inequality in Maryland.
Women who are first responders - doctors, nurses, fire and police personnel;
essential service workers - hospital and nursing home staff, store clerks, bus drivers,
and grocery cashiers; essential professionals - clergy, social workers, teachers, pharmacists, journalists; community leaders,
women or girls who organized food drives, made masks to donate, encouraged everyone to stay home or wear a mask, women activists, writers, professors, etc.
who are making a difference in the fight for equality for all,
any woman who is helping us all to make it through.
A streaming “Parade of 100 Maryland Sheroes"
is available to watch on the MCW site.
