The Women’s Heritage Museum is a worldwide online digital museum that inspires, protects and preserves the legacy of women as historical priceless monuments of humanity, celebrating women’s landmark successes, and inspiring generations present and future, while simultaneously honoring them. It draws on the characteristics of a museum, in order to complement, enhance, or augment the museum experience through personalization, interactivity and richness of the content.
The virtual museum performs as the digital footprint of a physical museum and acts independently, while maintaining the authoritative status as bestowed by the Society upon its inductees, associates, affiliates and members in its definition of a museum. In tandem with the Society’s mission of a physical museum, the virtual museum is also committed to public access; to both the knowledge systems imbedded in the collections and the systematic, and coherent individual and organization of their display, as well as to their timeless preservation. Men and women both young and old all form a part and play a crucial role in the preservation of the monuments contained therein as partners and stewards of women’s historical legacies and heritage.
