The Smithsonian American Women's History Museum presents an opportunity to celebrate women's essential contributions, reclaim those left out of the American story, and use women's history as a lens to examine our shared history.
Women have contributed to America's most defining moments—times that shaped constitutional rights, yielded scientific breakthroughs, and created the symbols of our nation. Yet a diversity of women's stories has not been widely told. Until now.
Together we have the opportunity to create a museum to share women's stories in ways they haven't been told before.
