Women's History Celebration - Women Leaders, Past & Present

Maryland NOW and Allegany College of Maryland presented the Second Annual Women's History Celebration & Networking Event "Women Leaders - Past and Present" on March 16, 2013 in Cumberland, Maryland.

Women officials from both Allegany and Garrett Counties - elected and appointed - were recognized and a portion of the program for them was reserved to share a bit about their duties and career paths to the attendees who might like to choose public service as a career choice.

Other co-sponsors include BPW/MD (Maryland Business and Professional Women of MD) and AAUW (American Association of University Women).

A letter from United States Senator Barbara Mikulski to the group recognizing the event as well as the importance of women's history and rights, was presented and read by Robin Summerfield, United State Senator Ben Cardin's Western Maryland Field Representative.

Kate Campbell Stevenson, a nationally-known performer who portrays historical women, entertained as Rachel Carson, marine biologist and the first environmentalist, and Louise Arner Boyd, Arctic Explorer. An extensive exhibit of buttons, photographs, newspapers and other items focusing upon women's history was also presented by historian Albert Feldstein.
