Mission and Vision

Founded in 1996, the National Women’s History Museum (NWHM) is an innovative online museum dedicated to uncovering, interpreting, and celebrating women’s diverse contributions to society. A renowned leader in women’s history education, the Museum brings to life the countless untold stories of women throughout history, and serves as a space for all to inspire, experience, collaborate, and amplify women’s impact—past, present, and future. We strive to fundamentally change the way women and girls see their potential and power.

The NWHM fills in major omissions of women in history books and K-12 education, providing scholarly content and educational programming for teachers, students, and parents. We reach more than five million visitors each year through our online content and education programming and, in March 2023, mounted our first physical exhibit at the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library in downtown Washington, DC, We Who Believe in Freedom: Black Feminist DC. The Museum is a nonpartisan, nonprofit 501(c)3. Follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram and visit us at womenshistory.org.

Your personal history.
The future you're creating. Your beliefs.
We see you as a kindred spirit in our vision. Join us.






 We are committed to seek out and grow the representation of women makers and designers to feature in our online store, with an emphasis on diversity—to honor, celebrate and appreciate their unique narratives. 

If you are an artist interested in submitting your work for consideration to be sold online, please send us an email including:

  • “Your name – Artist Submission” in the email subject header
  • 4 – 6 images of your work, that you feel is well suited for NWHM
  • Wholesale prices for the attached images
  • Website address (optional)
  • Your phone contact information 

You may apply once a year, and are welcome to add other information to your submission, such as an artist statement or where else your work is currently sold.

All work submitted will be reviewed, however, we will only contact those applicants with whom we’d like to carry on a further conversation.

We are not equipped to administer return procedures of any samples.

For all product submissions please send your information to retail@womenshistory.org.
