Pierangela from the Museum in Granada had the idea to put a map on the homepage of the platform, which is upside-down, or at least not like we are always used to see it. Thinking about it, seen from the universe, every position is the right one….maybe it helps us to look at things in a different way.
I would like to have your comments on that idea (even as a little blog test)
lots of love claudia

What a fantastic blog!

Given your commitment to women’s history and museums, I thought you might be interested in learning about an opportunity to ensure that women’s history secures a home in Washington, DC.

This has been an historic year for women from Hillary Clinton’s historic run for the Presidency to Dara Torres’ improbable 5th Olympic bid. Right now, Congress has the opportunity to celebrate this remarkable year by providing a permanent home for the National Women’s History Museum (NWHM) adjacent to the National Mall.

The NWHM currently operates as an award-winning cyber museum. Its members have been working for 11 years to secure a permanent site for the museum, which will be the first comprehensive repository for women’s history.

NWHM has indentified a vacant lot adjacent to the National Mall and now needs Congress to authorize their purchase of this federal property at fair-market value. Rep. Carolyn B. Maloney (D-NY) introduced House Resolution 6548 on July 17, 2008 to approve the purchase of land. Now, your local Representative needs to hear from you so that this legislation will pass before Congress adjourns for the year.

Please let me know if you have any questions and/or would like more information about H.R. 6548 or the NWHM. Hope we get a chance to connect on this important issue.

Best,
Erin
