The year 2020 marks the 100th anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment, guaranteeing and protecting women's constitutional right to vote. This historic centennial offers an unparalleled opportunity to commemorate a milestone of democracy and to explore its relevance to the issues of equal rights today. Thus, the Historical Committee of the Bar Association of Baltimore City (BABC) has elected to highlight the efforts of the ten women who have served as president in the BABC’s 140-year history. Come help us to celebrate the passage of the 19th Amendment and honor our ten women presidents.
The program includes:


A video presentation, “Pathways to Leadership,”
with a special tribute to Sheila K. Sachs, Esquire
