Support Righting Women’s History
NCWHS has launched our third decade of activism with a strategic plan that focuses on projects and partnerships to advocate for more – more women’s history in the news, more women’s stories told at historic sites, more sites that honor women. Support the future of history with a donation or by becoming a member today! Here are three current projects that your contributions will support!
Clara Barton National Historic Site
The future of the first women’s historic site in the National Park system, the Clara Barton National Historic Site in Glen Echo, Maryland, was at risk. We got to work, leading a series of online discussions this summer with historians, the National Park Service, and other stakeholders to reimagine the future of this important place. As part of this collaborative effort, we offered recommendations on themes that will contribute to the National Park Service’s interpretation. The site renovations and new frameworks will bring Clara Barton’s story to life.
Telling Women’s Stories: A Toolkit for Historic Sites & Museums
Do you know a small museum that needs resources for telling a more inclusive story? We’re excited to announce our new online toolkit that will help staff and volunteers at your favorite organization uncover the women’s history at their site or museums. It has research tips, successful case studies, and more. Find the Toolkit on the NCWHS website and share this link.
National Votes for Women Trail
The NVWT keeps growing! We now have more than 2,400 sites in the online database (www.nvwt.org), as well as accompanying lesson plans with videos. We will soon launch a series of podcasts about the Trail in ten different states to explore the rich diversity of the suffrage movement in all parts of the country.
There is more work to do—and untold stories to discover! Please donate today so that we can continue to shine a light on women’s history at sites everywhere in America.
Your one-time or recurring tax-deductible donation can be made by check or through our secure, online payment portal. Checks can be sent to NCWHS c/o Alice Paul Institute, P.O. Box 1376 Mt. Laurel, NJ 08054.
