Contact: Melissa Schwartz (DOI) 202-208-6416
WASHINGTON, D.C. — As Women’s History Month comes to a close, Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar will host a town hall discussion at the Maryland Women’s Heritage Center in Baltimore, Md. to discuss efforts to preserve and highlight the many accomplishments of women throughout American history.
Interior’s National Park Service – through its parks, national historic landmarks, and educational programs – plays an integral role in telling America’s story. At present, however, less than 8 percent of the National Park System is estimated to be dedicated to women or women’s achievements. The town hall will bring together leaders in women’s history and members of the public to explore ways in which women’s contributions to the nation can better be commemorated and celebrated.
The Maryland Women’s Heritage Center honors Maryland’s historical and contemporary renowned women and girls who have been inducted into the Maryland Women’s Hall of Fame, as well as the Unsung Heroines who have shaped their families and communities.
