The International Association of Women’s Museums celebrates together with its members International Museum Day: Museums and contested histories: Saying the unspeakable in museums.

Every day Women’s Museums around the world are making women’s history visible by telling the untold stories of women. They take an active role in peacefully addressing traumatic histories through mediation, and explore ways to understand the incomprehensible aspects of humanity’s contested histories.

Between 18 and 21 May Women’s Museums will tell their untold stories on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
