House bill to create Smithsonian women’s history museum up for a vote

WASHINGTON – The Democrat-led House of Representatives aims to pass a bill Tuesday to build a women’s history museum on the National Mall.

“This museum is so important because if we fail to recognize women, we cannot empower them,” said Rep. Carolyn Maloney, D-N.Y., one of the bill’s sponsors, in a statement noting the lack of national landmarks dedicated to women. “But women’s stories have been largely excluded from history textbooks.”

The measure, which has the bipartisan support of 293 cosponsors, would establish a women’s history museum within the Smithsonian Institution and make steps towards the construction of a facility. It would also create a council that would make recommendations to the Smithsonian Board of Regents for the design, planning, and construction of the museum, as well as for the location of the building on or near the National Mall.
