  • In October 2013, Girl Museum hosted an International Day of the Girl event in Wellington, New Zealand. Girl Rising interviewed Head Girl Ashley about the media’s representations of girls. You can read about this on the Girl Rising blog (October 15th, 2013).

"I think we need to bring in this perspective of what the girlʼs lives were like beyond their economic value, which is the only thing that typically gets recorded. Girlʼs perspectives are pretty much denied in academia, in museums alike. And museums are places we go to find ourselves and look at ourselves in the past. And if the only images of girls are the pretty Impressionist girls and we look a what the wall text says and it talks about brush strokes and the play of light, but doesn't speak of the person that we are looking at, what we are looking at it is a disconnect.

Today's onslaught of exploitative images is new in terms of volume, but weʼve been creating these images forever. If we donʼt engage in a way that help girls understand what these images mean to them to them and for them going into adulthood then we are going to continue making the same mistakes and have them misunderstand their own selves." - Ashley Remer, Head Girl

  • Head Girl Ashley discussed African-American sculptor Augusta Savage in collaboration with Chick History on their #HerStory podcast project here (October 28, 2012).
  • In 2011, we were accepted into Google for NonProfits, a program that has been invaluable to our organization. Girl Museum was also a Flip Video Spotlight partner.
  • On March 31, 2011, Girl Museum partnered with the American Poetry Museum to launch Girl for Sale, an exhibit about girl trafficking that interrogates and responds to the issues through poetry, art and education. It is about outrage, survival and prevention.

"Out of this vast range of objects and data, Girl Museum dedicates its purpose to the valuable and overlooked topic of ‘girlhood’. There are many children’s museums, yet few look at childhood itself as the subject."
