Well behaved women never make history

It’s Time to Honor Women on the National Mall

Posted by gansie on September 23, 2010

On Tuesday night Meryl Streep proved she didn’t need a camera on her to be funny and poignant.

In front of supporters for the creation of the National Women’s History Museum, she rattled off museums dedicated to other worthy, hard working Americans: the National Postal Museum, the International Spy Museum…And then wondered why there has not been a museum honoring the history of women’s achievements on the Mall in DC.

You’d think this would be an easy get. But like lots of crucial legislation that does not get passed, the museum is also in jeopardy.

Senators Coburn and DeMint are preventing a vote from happening on the National Women’s History Museum Act (S.2129), which would allow the purchase of land.

We hope that the hold will be lifted so women can be properly honored in our nation’s capital. Click here to sign the petition.
