This Week's Theme: Progressive

 

The National Women’s History Museum will be presenting new virtual content every day based on weekly themes. Each day, the programs provided will reflect the theme in some way – some will highlight specific women, a movement, or an era. 

 

New content is uploaded daily around 12p EST. Brave Girls Content will be available by 4 p.m. EST. Please see the calendar for upcoming programming.

 

Join us for a presentation of one of our electronic fieldtrips, virtual workshops, or cooking videos.
