National Collaborative for Women’s History Sites

Let's put women's history sites on the map!

The National Collaborative for Women’s History Sites (NCWHS) is a non-profit that supports and promotes the preservation and interpretation of sites and locales that bear witness to women’s participation in American life. The Collaborative makes women’s contributions to history visible so that all women’s experiences and potential are fully valued.

View our newly released “National Votes For Women Trail” database! If you would like to add to our growing list of sites, please complete this form.  If you need assistance completing the form, see our tutorial.  We also have a spreadsheet that lists sites by state.
