March is Women's History Month and is defined by the Law Library of Congress as a month that "honors and celebrates the struggles and achievements of American women throughout the history of the United States. American women have struggled throughout our history to gain rights not simply for themselves but for many other under represented and disenfranchised groups in America." For legislation, Presidential Proclamations, and Executive Orders pertaining to this commemoration, visit the Law Library of Congress' Women's History Month page.
Streaming Film Screening, March 8 & 15, 2021 from 6 p.m. - 7:30 p.m.
Join the National Women's History Museum for a special two-part screening of the documentary, And She Could Be Next.
And She Could Be Next tells the story of a defiant group of women of color—candidates and organizers—who are transforming politics from the ground up. Filmed throughout 2018 and into 2019, by a team of women filmmakers of color, the two-part miniseries features a dynamic slate of history-makers including: Stacey Abrams (GA), Rashida Tlaib (MI), Lucy McBath (GA), Veronica Escobar (TX), Maria Elena Durazo (CA), and Bushra Amiwala (IL).
And She Could Be Next asks whether democracy itself can be preserved—and made stronger—by those most marginalized.
Join the filmmakers afterwards for a live Q&A session with the audience.
NWHM will host a screening for the first episode on March 8th. and for the second episode screening on March 15th.
Registration is required for these free events:
The National Women's History Museum Women's contributions and accomplishments for the most part have been overlooked and consequently omitted from mainstream culture. The National Women's History Museum helps fill that void. Rather than rewriting current exhibitions at other history museums or having to decide what to omit elsewhere to "fit in" women's history, the Museum serves to place women's history along side current historical exhibitions. Women's history isn't meant to rewrite history. The objective is to promote scholarship and expand our knowledge of American history."
Because of HER Story A project of the Smithsonian American Women's History Initiative "to create, disseminate, and amplify the historical record of the accomplishments of American women" in order to "create a more equitable and just American society."
