“WomanTalk Live is proud to partner with the Maryland Women’s Heritage Center. I am excited that Maryland will soon be home to this much needed center and museum that will showcase the stories of many women from our state who have made significant contributions throughout history, but have not been recognized. This is also why WomanTalk Live is devoted to providing “women’s history tidbits” on the weekly radio show, in the weekly newsletter and on the show's Facebook page, and on discovering the WomanTalk Live Girl Gone Great every year --- to highlight the extraordinary women who have largely been invisible. It is important to correct these past errors and learn about these women in order to inspire role models.”

 

--Ann Quasman, Host of WomanTalk Live
