The network womeninmuseum is a loose union of Women’s Museums, initiatives and museums dedicated to women.
There are 50 women’s and gender museums and 14 women’s museums initiatives in different countries nowadays. These museums are very important for gender informing and education of people, for improving of role women in society, for implementation of equal rights and opportunities. The activities of these museums are quite various. They support different women’s art, tell the history of women of their country and support scientific projects. But information about their acitivity is unknown for the wide public. Today some of these museums began to consolidate their efforts and look for the possibilities of cooperation and interaction.

The network was created at the 1st International Women’s Museums Congress in June 2008 in Merano, during which the institutions passed a resolution encapsulating the concept of the «Women’s Museum» and defining their common objectives.

The network womeninmuseum its tasks as follows:
  • to increase the visibility and acceptance of Women’s Museums
  • to actively support each other
  • to make use of the internet plattform in order to push ahead the work of network
The whole resolution you can read and download here.
In September of 2009 the second International Congress of Women’s museums took place (Bonn, Frauenmuseum). 18 projects of women’s museum from different countries were represented. The printed catalogue of these projects was published by Frauenmuseum. It was very useful for all participants of Congress for their further activity.
The next step – the third International Congress of Women’s museum took place in Argentina, Buenos Aires, 2010 and we decided to found an international organisation 2012 and want to have an afiliated membership with ICOM.
In the meantime a global coordination committee was founded, with delegates from each continent.
