The National Women’s Museum staff hopes the museum will be built at the National Mall next to the museums recognizing and documenting Holocaust victims, Native Americans and other historical events.

Decade-long petition for Women’s National History Museum moves through U.S. House

In honor of National Women’s Month in March, an active petition has been signed and shared in search of a home for a museum dedicated to women’s history at the National Mall. National Women’s History Director and CEO Joan Wages issued a statement Monday regarding a step forward for a public-private partnership with Smithsonian. Representatives Carolyn Maloney (D-NY) and Ed Royce (R-CA) introduced bill H.R. 19 to the House of Representatives on March 30, Wages said the bill was named after the 19th Amendment, which gave women the right to vote. The National Women’s History team said this is a huge success, however, the bill may change throughout legislature. “It is very important to show people all of the amazing things women have done throughout history.” said Diana Morce, who minors in women and gender studies at MSU.
