There is a tremendous need for a Women's History Museum so we can share the full history of our nation. We receive so many calls and requests for data from across the country and internationally. They want more online exhibits, biographies and lesson plans that have been well researched and verified.
We need a groundswell of support to get the legislation passed this year. We are not asking for money from Congress - just the authority to build our museum.
With a building in DC we will be able to share so much more and can start traveling exhibits too. It will be a great inspiration for our children. It will also encourage other countries to do the same. We need to share the full history and not just the wars and chronological timelines.
This organization has a very hard-working staff and volunteers and is on the right path. However, we really need more volunteers to garner support in their communities to get the commission legislation passed this year!

I have been working with the Museum for many years and am continually impressed with their Online Exhibits and educational resources. The Museum is committed to educating the public on the important contributions women have made to our nation. I can't wait to visit the Museum once it finally gets a physical location at the National Mall in Washington, DC, but until that time, I highly recommend checking out all of the amazing Online Exhibits on NWHM's website!

I have been involved with the National Women's History Museum for a number of years and find it a wonderful way to cherish and honor the memory of the amazing women who came before me. Right now the Museum is online and virtual - but their goal is to have a building on the Smithsonian Mall. Imagine how special it would be to bring a young girl to a one-of-a-kind, National Women's History Museum, where the impact of women on America's culture and society is not just a side exhibit, but fully showcased for all to see and learn from! What an inspiration it would be for generations to come.
