This summer, Maryland Humanities raises the voices of four notable women who took action to secure their right to vote. We highlight the unique story of each of these historic figures as they fought for their rights. This year’s series starts in the 1600s and continues through the modern era.

Performer and scholar Mary Ann Jung brings Margaret Brent (1601–1671) to life. A British noblewoman who resided in St. Mary’s County in Colonial Maryland, in 1648, she became the first woman in Colonial America to request to vote.

A video of the performance will be posted on the Maryland History Day YouTube channel for 1 week on July 6th. Join us Wednesday July 8th at 1pm as we stream the performance and host a live Q&A with the performer starting at 2pm. Sign up to participate in the Q&A and you’ll be entered in a drawing to win fun prizes.
