"Well-behaved women rarely make history." ~NWHM

Elizabeth Cady Stanton & Susan B. Anthony
Look at these two women!  Elizabeth Cady Stanton is looking right at you -- YOU!  Look at that face.  She is challenging you to get off your duff and do something to help women across the land.  And, if you look closely, Susan B. Anthony is slowly nodding her head up and down in agreement.  Yes, you are the one they want.  You can help promote women's causes.  Yes, you. 

How?  Well, here's an easy answer.  Did you know that Congress is on the verge of approving the building of a new museum dedicated to women and women's history? Spokesperson Meryl Streep is leading the charge for citizens to sign a petition urging lawmakers to take the final steps to approve the construction of a National Women's History Museum (designed by a female architect) next to the National Mall in Washington, D.C. Follow this link: <a href=""></a> for more information. The website has a vast array of delightful online exhibits and information about women and women's history. It includes details about the proposed building, and how you can help by becoming a charter member of the museum, donating to the cause, signing a petition of support or writing your legislators. The website itself is already a stunning bounty of information, links, photos and videos. The proposed museum promised to be a fitting addition to our national resources. Won’t you help?
