Welcome to the Maryland Women's Hall of Fame Online.
Established in 1985 by the Maryland Commission for Women and the Women Legislators of Maryland, the Maryland Women's Hall of Fame seeks to honor Maryland women who have made unique and lasting contributions to the economic, political, cultural, and social life of the state and to provide visible models of achievement for tomorrow's female leaders.  Each year, an independent committee reviews nominations and selects up to five women for induction into the Hall of Fame.  These women are honored in an induction ceremony held during March, Women's History Month.  A plaque listing the names of the inductees is on display at the Maryland Women's Heritage Center in Baltimore.  Please select any inductee from the list below to view a biography and image as supplied by the Maryland Commission for Women.  For further information, where available, please follow the links to the Maryland State Archives biographical files.  These pages will be periodically updated as time and resources allow.
