Women’s History Month is Year-Round! – National Women’s History Museum

Black Facts.com

By National Women’s History Museum

Educate. Inspire. Empower.
Here at NWHM, we encourage you to include and amplify women’s stories in your classrooms and beyond all year round. Women’s History Month gives us a chance to reflect on all the work we’ve done to share a more complete history, and plan for more. We’ll be right here next month with more resources to support you in that work!
This month, NWHM is excited to celebrate the stories of women related to our upcoming exhibition, We Who Believe in Freedom: Black Feminist DC. This in-person exhibition will open at the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library in Washington, DC on March 30 and will be on display through 2024. If you are visiting DC in the next year, we invite you to check it out! We will also launch a special online resource in mid-March that you can use to explore Black feminism in DC with your learners no matter where you are, with new resources added throughout the year.

About National Women’s History Museum

Founded in 1996, the National Women’s History Museum (NWHM) is an innovative online museum dedicated to uncovering, interpreting, and celebrating women’s diverse contributions to society. A renowned leader in women’s history education, the Museum brings to life the countless untold stories of women throughout history, and serves as a space for all to inspire, experience, collaborate, and amplify women’s impact—past, present, and future. We strive to fundamentally change the way women and girls see their potential and power.

The NWHM fills in major omissions of women in history books and K-12 education, providing scholarly content and educational programming for teachers, students, and parents. We reach more than four million visitors each year through our online content and education programming and, in early 2023, we will mount our first physical exhibit at the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library in downtown Washington, D.C. The Museum is a nonpartisan, nonprofit 501(c)3
