The Maryland Women’s Journal began as a newspaper in 2004 . In 2017, we celebrate our 13th Anniversary. We are now a glossy magazine serving Maryland women.

The Women’s Journal focuses on providing readers with educational information, written by local experts, on a wide range of topics including health, beauty, business, home and garden and education. We also publish timely special features on topics important to Maryland women including breast and heart health, financial security, community happenings and more.

With local editions in Anne Arundel, Carroll, Howard and Montgomery counties, the magazine reaches women where they live, work and shop.
