Support the National Women’s History Museum

Along the National Mall in Washington, you’ll find many different museums. What you won’t find is a museum about women’s history.

The House of Representatives has passed legislation that would begin the process to change that. This bill would establish a commission to follow the recognized process for instituting a national museum.

Tell your senators to support and pass this legislation. This bipartisan bill begins the process of determining how best to honor the generations of women who played a role in shaping our communities and nation.

Tell your senators that women’s contributions deserve to be recognized.
