This long-term exhibition features the stories of more than 250 Golden State women, from the 1700s to the present, who inspire change. Developed in collaboration with the Museum and California First Partner Jennifer Siebel Newsom, it explores women’s ongoing struggle for equality.
The first part of this multi-lingual gallery chronicles leaders in the fight for equality, from early suffragettes to contemporary equal rights leaders. Interactive media and physical interactive exhibits are designed to promote a meaningful discourse.
The second part of the gallery features 27 contemporary women that are leading the way in different ways and fields. Some you may have heard of, like Sally Ride, while others are new, inspiring, women’s voices.
