The National Women’s History Museum in Alexandria, VA has served as the biggest online cultural institution dedicated to US women’s history. The museum has motivated support for preserving and sharing extensive women’s history.
Current free exhibits include “The Women of NASA,” which shows how women have played an essential role in NASA for nearly a century. There’s also “Fashioning Yourself!” all about the history of home sewing and how an outfit shows a woman’s sense of self. Another exhibit is “First but Not Last,” which explores the ways women have been president before they could even vote for the office.
There’s also a monthly Fab Five series that highlights women that have and continue to make history. This month’s features include Ida B. Wells-Barnett, Claudette Colvin, Fannie Lou Hamer, Marsha P. Johnson and Mary McLeod Bethune.
There’s also lots of links and resources to continue learning for adults, young adults and children.
