First Lady Announces National Women’s Museum

First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton announced plans for the The Women’s Museum, a national museum scheduled to open in Dallas’ Fair Park in October 2000. The museum will highlight the achievements of women.

Rodham Clinton said that the museum is important, since American schools tend to skim over the history of women’s achievements.

The First Lady commented on the fight for women’s equality, stating “I hope that all of us know that the struggle is far from over,” and said that the museum will “help ensure that the struggle and the history of the struggle is told and continues.”
