Chronicles of American Women: Honoring the Lives and Legacies of Women

Welcome to the National Women's History Museum's Chronicles of American Women. This site is to honor the lives and legacies of women, living and dead-those whose individual and collective contributions have enriched our lives. With stories and pictures you can create a lasting memorial to a special woman in your life.

The Museum is temporarily not accepting new submissions to the Chronicles. We are in the process of relaunching our website which will contain a new form. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause. Please check back late summer 2017 for the new form. Thank you for your interest and support. If you want to make changes to an existing Chronicle, simply email with your edits, providing the name of the woman honored.



Please note that the National Women's History Museum does not control, monitor, or edit the content of individual Chronicle pages, comments, or related material. The Museum cannot vouch for the accuracy of the information contained within each Chronicle. If you identify inaccurate or inappropriate content, please bring it to our attention via email at
