Google Art Talk – Monday March 23

March 17th, 2015

NWHM will be presenting a Google Art Talk on Monday, March 23 at 12 pm EST.

The title is “History from the Women’s Perspective.”

History is full of exciting stories about interesting people who achieved amazing things. All too often, however, the popular narrative has not included women. Using National Women’s History Museum’s newest exhibit on the Google Cultural Institute “New Beginnings: Immigrant Women and the American Experience,” we’ll discuss how to incorporate women’s perspectives into historical stories.
