May 2010 Third International Conference, Buenos Aires, Argentina

May 30, 2010

The Third International Conference of Women’s Museums in Buenos Aires on the 24th and 25th of May was part of the II International Feminist Congress 2010.

At this congress, it was decided that it would be advantageous to become members of the International Council of Museums, which requires the founding of an international association in the future. The congress elected a new Council Committee with a single co-ordinator as well as representatives from each continent. In the discussion about criteria for membership to the Network of Women’s Museums, it was agreed to accept any museum which would like to become a member. It was also decided to make two changes to the 2008 resolution, so that museums which followed and signed that resolution would be invited into the network and that the network would be opened to single persons as “friends of women’s museums”. Finally, it was agreed that the fourth international congress of women’s museums would be held in Alice Springs, Australia, in 2012.
