International Association of Women’s Museums

“Welcome to the International Association of Women’s Museums (IAWM). We are thrilled to share with you our organization and members, which seek to provide women’s museums – and those who work with them – a place to share and collaborate. Learn about our history, our goals, and our members.” (Home)


“IAWM has six goals to guide our mission:

To promote culture, arts, education and training from a gender perspective;

To foster exchange, networking, mutual support and global cooperation among Women’s Museums;

To conduct research and the development of projects, exhibitions, new initiatives, community activities, seminars and conferences;

To promote and strengthen the acceptance of Women’s and Gender Museums worldwide;

To achieve international recognition in the world of museums; and

To advocate for women’s rights and a gender democratic society.” (About us)
