The Maryland Women's Hall of Fame (MWHF) recognizes women natives or residents of the U.S. state of Maryland for their significant achievements or statewide contributions. It was established in 1985 by the Maryland Commission for Women and the Women Legislators of Maryland. Honorees are selected by an independent committee, and are inducted in March during Women's History Month.[1]
