About the Imagining the Future of Women’s Human Rights Project
Imagining the Future of Women’s Human Rights, a crowd-sourced online campaign scheduled to be presented from May – September 2014, will showcase the creativity, imagination and ideas of global audiences. IMOW will ask the world’s women, “Are We Equal Yet?” and use their creative responses to galvanize mini-campaigns around critical issues such as money, family, violence and workplace equality.
About the Ignite: Women Fueling Science and Technology Project
The creativity, innovation and talent of women and girls are critical to fueling the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). Yet – despite increasing recognition that STEM is essential to the world’s economic growth – women globally are missing, under-represented and dropping out from STEM fields. The International Museum of Women intends to tackle the critical problem of women’s participation in STEM by inspiring and educating girls and young women through cutting edge multi-media art, video and digital story-telling.
Ignite: Women Fueling Science and Technology, a global online exhibition scheduled to launch in fall 2014, will showcase inspiring, global STEM role models, with content, stories and art sourced from women around the world. The result will be one of the world’s the richest global content repositories on women and STEM.
