ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP/WJZ) — The Maryland General Assembly held a joint session in honor of the 100th Anniversary of the Women’s Suffrage March from New York to Washington, D.C.

Political reporter Pat Warren was there for the ceremony.

Friday’s event was sponsored by the Women’s Caucus, which includes 56 women from the House and Senate.

Women from both bodies marched into the Join Session held in the House Chambers.

Officials say Delegate Melony Griffith, D-Prince George’s County, sang the Star-Spangled Banner.

The women lawmakers were also expected to participate in an oral rendition of the march, underscoring Maryland’s role in the women’s journey.
