A Smithsonian affiliate, The Women's Museum™: An Institute for the Future makes visible the unique, textured, and diverse stories of American women. Using the latest technology and interactive media, the Museum's exhibits and programs expand our understanding of women's participation in shaping our nation's history and create a lively environment for dialogue and discovery. Thousands of stories recount public and private triumphs and the struggles of those who would be denied their freedoms in all its forms: political, social, and spiritual. The Ronya Kozmetsky Institute for the Future offers hands-on educational programming in a 21st Century learning environment. By encouraging and reinforcing abilities, dreams, and potential, young people and adults acquire the resources and competencies to become productive workers, responsible citizens, and successful individuals.
