Notable Women of Arlington

Working with Marymount University from 1991-1993, the Commission on the Status of Women compiled biographies of Arlington women who show how people willing to fight for a cause, work for change, or challenge assumptions, can accomplish the extraordinary. It is now part of the Library’s Virginia Room Collection.
