Review for National Womens History Museum, Alexandria, VA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I was shocked at the amount of women's history I never knew. I am a history geek and was looking for this information from High School through College and beyond but it was missing. It has been left out of our textbooks, our museums, our parks...everything, but this group is fighting to bring it into the mainstream. The stories of women as individuals who did great things and amazing group efforts by women that helped make America great are fascinating. Some of the stories are shocking...some are joyful ...all are interesting!! They are also influencing women's history to be discovered and spotlighted in other countries as well ! They are very careful with their donor's money.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Get them more money to finish all the online exhibits they have planned and finish the overhaul of their website (in process). I would expand their speaker's bureau as well and look at doing more traveling exhibits while they work to find a site for the physical museum....

Review for National Womens History Museum, Alexandria, VA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

This organization has multiple kinds of programs; speaker's bureau, traveling exhibits, lecture series, online exhibtis that contain information found nowhere else. Their work is life changing and ground breaking.

It took them 15 years to find a site worthy of their subject matter and now they have bipartisan support to get Congress to act to give them a permanent home. We look forward to them joining the other great museums on the National Mall to show that America truly honors their women.

Review for Empowered Women International, Inc., Alexandria, VA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Marga has been incredibly innovative in her training program and counseling for some of the most disadvantaged in this area. Truly an inspiration to us all! EWI has brought together a wide range of citizens who would never have met any other way in order to pool their skills to help our underserved immigrant population.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I have witnessed first hand the transformation of our immigrant members. They will give you all testimony as to how important EWI has been in their lives...I know they tell us often how much our work has meant to them.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Find them more funding to expand their work.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

watching the transformation of our immigrant women.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

first rate and dedicated.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

do amazing things. They stretch every dollar even better than any other group I have ever been involved with.

Ways to make it better...

I had more time to give.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

funding, funding, funding.

One thing I'd also say is that...

Everytime any other group I work with whines about this or that I hold up EWI as a group that does so much with so little...they are trend setters and great role models for other non profits.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every month
