The National Women's History Museum

Hi Contributors of the Pittsburgh Women's Blogging Society,

Hope this note finds you doing well and enjoying the Spring weather. We were in touch last fall about The National Women’s History Museum’s efforts to secure a permanent home on the National Mall. The legislative fight continues this year as Representative Carolyn B. Maloney (D-NY) re-introduced The National Women’s History Museum Act (H.R. 1700) with bipartisan support on March 25, 2009.In the meantime, the Museum continues to operate online. At this time, the Museum’s staffers are working on two cyber exhibits – one on women in film and one on African-American women. The Museum wants to hear from YOU what subject they should cover next in their cyber museum.

If you have suggestions for potential exhibits, please visit their blog ( and leave a comment with your recommendations. You might see them come to life in the very near future!

Warm regards,

Erin Skinner,

on behalf of the National Women’s History Museum

  1. In a way, for an art-lover like myself, decorating our home is quite easy. I just please myself mostly, with my poor husband going along with most of my choices. I am always collecting beautiful things, like handicraft decorative pieces, little sculptures and hangings.
    And I simply hang lovely paintings in all our rooms. Not all are originals of course, as who can afford many of those.
    I order many prints on canvas from who have a vast collection of images from Western art, that you can choose to make economically-priced prints like this Interior in Aubergines, by Henri Matisse,, from there.
    I can choose the frames as well and my orders are delivered quickly to my home.
