May we introduce…our member: Girl Museum

Aug 30, 2017

Girl Museum is the first and only museum in the world dedicated to celebrating girls.  Founded in 2009, the museum is entirely virtual – all programs are available on the website, free and open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

The museum is run by Head Girl, Ashley E. Remer, and a dedicated team of volunteers from around the world.  As a lover of museums, Ashley saw that girls were frequently left out of museum narratives – and wanted to give girls and their stories a place to call home. 

Girl Museum believes girls are the key to a brighter, better future and that girls deserve to have a museum of their own.  This virtual space seeks to document, preserve, and present girls’ history and culture while empowering girls to lead healthy, happy lives.  The museum also produces pop-up events and exhibitions around the world to advocate for girls.

The objects in the collection range from contributed artworks and stories to Creative Commons licensed material from museums around the world. The exhibits take these objects and stories to showcase the real lives of girls in the past and present – highlighting their triumphs, struggles, and heroism to advocate for gender equality. 

The museum also produces participatory projects and a podcast series, and provides internships and ways to advocate for girls and girls’ rights – fostering a community dedicated to transforming the world through girl power.
