Women's history museum seeks homeBreaking News
After raising less than $10 million since 1996, the group is stepping up its efforts to generate $150 million for a museum dedicated to great names and unsung heroines.
"Half the story of U.S. history has never fully been told," said Susan B. Jollie, the museum organization's president."Our mission is to add women's stories to the historic record."
Thirty groups, including the National Association of Women Business Owners and the National Education Association, are urging support of the National Women's History Museum Act, which has already been passed by the Senate.
House approval would clear the way for use of the Old Post Office Annex building on Pennsylvania Avenue, just east of the White House, as a museum site. The facility north of the National Mall would provide more than 100,000 square feet of exhibit space. It has not been used since 1994.
