Chronicles of American Women

Welcome to the National Women's History Museum's new and improved Chronicles of American Women. This section is to honor the lives and legacies of women, living and dead-those whose individual and collective contributions have enriched our lives. With stories and pictures you can create a lasting memorial to a special woman in your life.
