Council Spotlight

Celebrating International Women’s Day

On March 7, 2023, the Council celebrated International Women’s Day with community members and organizations in Montgomery County that work to serve and protect women, including the Montgomery County Commission for Women, Montgomery County National Organization for Women and the National Council of Negro Women.

Today we celebrate the lives and legacies of the women who have made historical impacts in Montgomery County and the nation, including local trailblazers like Clara Barton and Emily Edmondson, and the women who will shape our future.

For the first time in the Council’s history, it includes a majority of women Councilmembers, each representative of various backgrounds, cultures and changemaking policies to make the County a better place to live.
