WOT’s Up

Women of Today is Celebrating Women’s History Month!

Discover the story
Throughout the month, we will be sharing resources along with notable women in history and today’s trailblazers.

To kick off this month, our spotlight is on The National Women’s History Museum. This is an online museum that Women of Today recently heard about. We were intrigued and wanted to know more so we reached out to the museum and Jennifer Herrera, VP of External Affairs, was kind enough to chat with us.

This museum was founded in 1996 as an online museum and today we can say, they were ahead of the times. They have plans to have a physical museum in Washington D.C., and are working towards a date in 2022.

NWHM is an excellent resource to learn about women in history and what we love, their virtual lectures and symposiums are free, but you have to register ahead. If you can make a donation, they are always appreciated.

Check out their Instagram page @womenshistory and you can catch-up on past virtual lectures on their YouTube Channel as well.  The online calendar on their homepage also has the weekly schedule and don’t miss their series titled Sundays @home.

All of the content the museum curates is timely, and we can say we learned a great deal during our call with Jennifer, thank you.
