Women’s History Month has come to a close — but that does not mean we should stop celebrating and honoring women’s many contributions to our nation. During March, NWHM certainly had a lot to celebrate! Our legislation was re-introduced in the House by Rep. Carolyn Maloney as HR 1700. Co-sponsors are lining up, so please urge your Members of Congress to come onboard! We also opened our first permanent exhibit in our Administrative Offices, entitled “This Isn’t Right!: Women Reform Leaders.”
The exhibit is now open at NWHM’s Administrative Offices, Monday-Friday, by appointment only. Please call 703-461-1920 or email to schedule a time to see the exhibit.

Look for more great things to come from NWHM in the future. We are currently working on 2 new CyberExhibits: one on women in film and another on African American women. Please come back to our blog often—we are working on debuting a feature that profiles a prominent historical woman every week.
