The purpose of our blog is to discuss topical issues, stories, and situations, as well as to share what we are up to and new ways for you to get involved. We are always searching for possible answers to the question: Why is a girl's worth culturally and historically relative?

Celebrate Women's History Month with our 31 Heroines of March


Once again, Girl Museum is honoring the women and girls who inspired us in our girlhood.  Every day in March we will be focusing on a different heroine in celebration of Women's History Month.  The submissions will then be added to our virtual Heroines Quilt, our ongoing exhibition that celebrates all those who have provided inspiration to young girls.

Though the deadline is past for having your heroine featured on our blog for the 31 Heroines of March, we are still accepting submissions for inclusion in the Heroines Quilt.  We invite girls of all ages to submit a short essay (250 words max) about their real/fictional, historic/contemporary, famous/local girlhood heroine, why they were important, and what impact they may still have on your life.  

If you have a favorite photo of your heroine, please attach it to your submission.  If you have no preference, we will source one--unless it is a family member, then we need your pic!

Send your submissions (preferably in Word) along with a separate image through to share@girlmuseum.org.  Let us know if you have any questions.

Have your heroine recorded for posterity and share her with the world!
