Through much of the nation’s history, women have come together in voluntary service and professional organizations.  In the process, they helped transform communities and the nation and the story of women’s history is in part a story of what these organizations have accomplished.

Many of these organizations have come together to form the NWHM Coalition which supports efforts to acquire a site for the National Women’s History Museum in Washington, DC. The museum will collaborate with its NWHM Coalition, many of which have archives and artifacts, and draw upon their rich history to develop a comprehensive overview of women’s historic contributions
