“Women

A pillar of the Smithsonian's mission is to tell the lesser-known stories of those who made the present possible while laying the foundation for a better tomorrow. For Women’s History Month, Smithsonian.com has collected representative examples of its coverage of diverse women throughout history. Ultimately, this is a journey not just of American women—but of America herself.
