Gender discrimination and gender segregation have posed considerable barriers for women from all walks of life and in all professions. Barriers which have been and continue to be broken.

Our History is Our Strength: No longer relegated to the back-notes of history, the stories of the women who have broken barriers and achieved greatness.

Come along with me as we take a stroll through the National Portrait Gallery, and learn about Women of Our Time, an interactive Gallery of and about some of the most influential women of the Twentieth Century.

Then we’ll visit the Women’s History Collections at the LIbrary of Congress.

This month has been a celebration and a remembrance of our past. Let us always remember those who opened doors for us, as we look forward to opening the doors to our future.
