The goal of this second International Conference was “to make the network a strong instrument for women’s culture and women’s museums, to strengthen the exchange of knowledge and projects, and to lead the way to mutual support. The enthusiasm shall spread from this conference to other countries and further the rise of new fascinating projects”.
The issues discussed at this congress included the ongoing coordination of the network and the importance, development and possibilities of an internet platform. A working group was established, consisting of at least one representative per continent. The working group’s tasks included researching the advantages and disadvantages of membership with the International Council of Museums and deciding on the criteria for admission of other museums to the network.
As part of the second congress, the first common exhibition of women’s museums opened with the title Women’s Museums Worldwide: Idols – Role Models – Heroines. For more information see Womens Museums Worldwide 2009-2011.
