Women’s Diversity, Women’s Impact


An offical part of the SXSW International Women’s Day Celebration.

Representation matters. However, too often women’s representation is presented through achievements of extraordinary individuals or limited to the “first” to accomplish something. Who is left out of those narratives? Where are the stories of women’s diversity? Or our collective experiences? The Smithsonian American Women’s History Initiative is changing how millions of people understand women’s history. Come listen to how Smithsonian curators are presenting the diversity of women’s impact, not just impactful women, to more accurately represent American history, present, and future.
