National Women’s History Museum


The National Women’s History Museum (NWHM) educates, inspires, empowers, and shapes the future by providing a historical context that fully integrates women’s contributions to American society.  The National Women’s History Museum’s vision is to build a world-class museum at the National Mall in Washington, D.C. NWHM currently raises awareness and honors women’s diverse experiences and achievements through its dynamic online museum, educational programs, scholarship and research. The Museum researches, collects and exhibits the contributions of women to the social, cultural, economic and political life of our nation in a context of world history. The sharing of this knowledge will illuminate and encourage women and men, people of all classes, races and cultures to move into the future with respect, equal confidence, greater partnership, and opportunity.
