CONGRESSWOMAN MALONEY TOURS PROPOSED NWHM SITE
On March 15, eight-term Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney (D-NY) toured the proposed site of the National Women’s History Museum with NWHM President Susan Jollie, Board Members Linda Denny and Joan Wages, and National Foundation for Women Legislators (NFWL) President Robin Read.
Ms. Maloney had expressed interest in setting up a tour at the Policy Pioneers reception earlier in the month. In her award acceptance speech, she reiterated her strong support for a National Women’s History Museum.
The Congresswoman promoted legislation to authorize NWHM to move the Suffrage Portrait Monument to the U.S. Capitol Rotunda in 1996 and co-sponsored a resolution in favor of the museum in 2001. She continues to be very interested in pursuing legislation to provide NWHM with a prominent museum site.
