ABOUT The Smithsonian American Women’s History Initiative

The Smithsonian launched the Smithsonian American Women’s History Initiative—Because Of Her Story—in 2018. The initiative is one of the country’s most ambitious undertakings to research, collect, document, display and share the compelling story of women, which is inclusive of all persons who identify as female or have a history of being designated female but identify differently.
