Capitol Hill:

Celebrating the Women-Owned Businesses of Capitol Hill

Three of the (five) women of The Hill is Home. L to R, Jen DeMayo, María Helena Carey and Claudia Rauch.

For International Women’s Day, we would like to take a moment to recognize the many women who own small businesses on Capitol Hill — the businesses that help bring together our awesome community and neighborhood.

Washingtonian put together a handy map that highlights many of the women-owned businesses in the city. I couldn’t help but notice that there were a few missing. The map is a work in progress, however, so that’s not meant as a criticism. When I started to make a list of who should be added, I realized just how many small businesses on the Hill are owned and run by women! To all of you small business owners: you rock!

In addition to the businesses that made it to the map, I can think of the following businesses to add. Please add yours in the comments!

  • 1424 Marketing
  • Capitol Hill Yoga
  • East City Bookshop
  • East Side Yoga
  • Gallery O on H
  • Kathy Pugh EZ-8 Running
  • Lavender Retreat
  • Mr. Henry’s
  • Rooted Pilates
  • Saving Grace Pet Care
  • Two Lions Antiques
  • The Forecast
  • The Hill is Home
