The National Women History Museum performs a number of needed functions, superbly as it pursues a building site on or near the Mall in Washington DC. Included are its wonderful website nwhm.org, major events, for example its De Pizan Galas honoring contemporary women whose achievements garner awards in various categories and "linked" to women in history in similar fields. It has great online exhibits on the website, an exciting and informative newsletter about its activities and about the role of women in the development of our country and often the world. Also a serious and academic lecture program in Washington,. It's goal is to fill in the missing part of U.S. history. Knowledge of that history will influence the future as more people of both genders know their history in full and learn about prior and current women path finders. Girls will realize realize their goals can be reached. There will be more unleashed brain power to help our country in this new and exciting times, less teen pregnancy and domestic violence. It is not asking for too much when one realizes that now children and adults are asking why they didn't learn about that earlier? The NWHM is doing all this with a small staff and some very dedicated volunteers. It's sights are set and it will achieve its goal of a world class national women's history museum on the Mall in Washington DC, the only country in the world to recognized the achievements and contributions of its women now and in history.
