A substantial portion of the New-York Historical Society’s fourth floor has reopened as the Center for Women’s History, a cutting-edge museum and scholarship hub. This landmark initiative is the country’s first permanent, public exhibition and educational center dedicated to women’s history. It highlights the significance of women’s history to the study of the American past and demonstrate how women across the spectrum of race, class, and culture exercised power and brought about change even before they could access the ballot box. Guided by a committee of distinguished historians and informed by the latest research, the Center combines permanent installations, temporary exhibitions, and a vibrant program of talks and debates to enrich the cultural landscape of New York City. The large-format, permanent multimedia installation Women’s Voices presents a diverse array of stories, exploring how women’s words and actions have driven social change from America’s earliest days to the present.
The interactive display gives voice to famous and forgotten women, and the movements and networks to which they belonged, alongside video commentary from leading historians and thinkers in women’s studies. Visitors to the Center have the opportunity to discover new role models, pursue unexpected links between historical figures across time, and contribute their own stories to an ever-expanding network of knowledge.
