Senator Mikulski is the sponsor of the Dorothy I. Height and Whitney M. Young, Jr. Social Work Reinvestment Act.

Senator Mikulski said, “I am so honored to be inducted into the National Women’s Hall of Fame. My fellow inductees inspire women around the world with their strength, courage and commitment to service. I’m proud to be named among them. It seems especially fitting that the Hall of Fame is located in Seneca Falls, NY, where America’s women’s rights movement got started. Today, on International Women’s Day, we should take time to honor all those women who fought to make a difference in the lives of others.”
