National Women’s History Museum on the Mall

Good day!

 

Nursing Clio posted this article on the National Women’s History Museum New Republic to Facebook, and I wanted to give it a broader audience.

Sonya Michel (UMBC) writes about the back story to the National Women’s History Museum bills currently moving through Congress. She was part of a Scholarly Advising Committee for the nascent museum before it was abruptly disbanded. I wrote to my Congresspersons as a historian, woman, and voter and urged them not to support HR 863 / SB 399 as currently written. I would like to see historians speak up for substance over donors so this does not become an example of simplistic, populist history overtaking the careful, nuanced work of actual scholars on American women.

 

Yours,

Kristen Ehrenberger
