Local Women of History
Providing Healing, Promoting Hope
Anne Arundel County honors Women's History Month.
In 1987, Congress passed a law authorizing the President to designate the month of March as Women's History Month. Over the years, different aspects of women's history were highlighted. In 2022, this year's theme is inspired by the female frontline workers and caregivers during the pandemic and takes a look back on how women have provided both healing and hope throughout history.

Here, we take a look back at just a few examples of local women from Anne Arundel County who have made significant contributions to our history.
