Women's History Month Event: Nevertheless, She Persisted

Saturday, March 3, 2018

Nevertheless, She Persisted. The national theme for the 2018 Women's History Month is a powerful one, which the City will recognize in partnership with the Maryland Commission on the Commemoration of the 100th Anniversary of the Passage of the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. Join us for the unveiling of the “Couriers to Congress” Highway Marker at Melrose Park, where women rallied in 1913 before parading down Rhode Island Avenue to present 75,000 signed petitions to U.S. senators considering granting women the right to vote. Melrose Park is where the skate park is located, and the event will begin at 10 a.m. on March 3. Refreshments will be served. Free parking and shuttle service will be available at the County Building, 4990 Rhode Island Avenue, through the entrance on 43rd Avenue. Please direct questions to Cheri Everhart at (301) 985-5021 or
