The Maryland Commission for Women and the Women Legislators of Maryland are seeking
recommendations of outstanding Maryland women from our state for induction into the 2014
Maryland Women’s Hall of Fame. The Maryland Women’s Hall of Fame was established through the
efforts of the Maryland Commission for Women and the Women Legislators of Maryland in 1985. Its
purpose is 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 role models of achievement for
tomorrow’s female leaders.
Historical and contemporary women are inducted each year. Among those honored are past
legislators, political and social activists, scientists, educators, writers and spiritual and community
leaders. They represent the women who have helped shape Maryland, the United States and the
world. Their induction into the Maryland Women’s Hall of Fame enhances the visibility of their
contributions to their work, communities, and the status of women.
Maryland continues to flourish because of its strong women leaders and their unceasing
strides to improve the quality of life in our state. The Maryland Women’s Hall of Fame gives us the
opportunity to honor these remarkable women. We invite organizations and individuals to take the
time to nominate deserving women who have made a difference in the lives of those they serve. An
independent committee representing a cross section of citizens of the state will review the nominations
and make the final recommendations. The Governor will honor these individuals in a special
ceremony in March of 2014.
The selection process and criteria for nominees is specified in detail on the enclosed form.
All nominations must be postmarked or emailed no later than Friday, October 25, 2013. If you opt
