Join us to celebrate Women's history month by spotlighting Maryland women who changed the world, for better or worse. Learn about women whose lives and legacies fundamentally altered their world. Some were good, some were bad and some were... complicated, but all helped create the modern world as we know it.
Inspired by the hit podcast Imagined Life, can you guess who The Founder, The Spy, The Organizer, or The Plaintiff might be?
