Impact

As an entirely virtual museum, our impact is spread around the world. Primarily, we impact our visitors through providing a safe virtual space for education and discussion of girl culture in the past and present. We also manage social media channels and other projects dedicated to advancing girls’ rights today, sharing stories that celebrate girls and their contributions, and empower girls to become active in documenting, preserving, and sharing their history and culture. Finally, we provide an avenue for emerging scholars and activists to contribute to our cause while developing professional skills that will help them achieve their dreams and build a better world.

Girl Museum is fascinating, sweet, sad, amazing, and makes you wonder and think. THANK YOU to Ashley and everyone there for making this!

Podcast Listeners

When I started as a marketing intern with Girl Museum in 2016, I didn’t really know what to expect and I kind of felt out of place. That feeling quickly went away as I began blogging regularly and contributing to exhibits and podcasts. I have learned so much about different points of history that I would have never known about, and about how to work remotely, among many other things. More than a year on, and I still love working with Girl Museum — I am surrounded by intelligent, funny, talented women from all over world who have become more than just colleagues, they have become friends. Girl Museum is making a difference, not only through historical preservation of the lives of girls worldwide, but through advocacy and outreach, and I am grateful to be a part of it.
