“The Calvert County Commission for Women and the League of Women Voters of Calvert County celebrated Women’s History Month together with its 17th annual Women of the World Awards Celebration and Luncheon at the Rod ‘N Reel Restaurant in Chesapeake Beach.

The luncheon was especially meaningful this year, as 2019 is the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th amendment, which gave women the right to vote.

The luncheon’s theme this year was “Be the Influence,” an idea put forward by Carol Harvat, a member of the Calvert County Commission for Women.

This year’s guest speaker was Ambassador Susan G. Esserman, a former deputy U.S. trade representative and founder and director of the University of Maryland Support, Advocacy, Freedom and Empower Center for human trafficking survivors.”
