Women’s Museum Receives $300,000


Please celebrate with us! The Women’s Museum has received an exceptional gift this holiday season: a transformative $300,000 grant from the Conrad Prebys Foundation. This is the largest single gift in the museum’s history and signals the dawn of a new and exciting era.

The Path to Our 40th Anniversary

In 1997, our first museum exhibit was at the Women’s History Reclamation Project at Golden Hill’s Art Union Building, 23rd and Broadway. Presiding at the opening were the indomitable, charismatic 73-year-old Mary Maschal, co-founder and President of the WHRP, and the talented, passionate Cindy Stankowski, WHRP’s Museum Director.

50 Years After Roe v. Wade . . .Time to Smash the Patriarchy!

The recent overturning of Roe V. Wade will go down in history as a huge blow to women’s rights and gender equality. Before this supreme court ruling, things had been on an upward trajectory – so much so that when younger people chanted, “smash the patriarchy” I thought they were being hyperbolic. . . not anymore.
