The Museum of Women's Resistance (MoWRe) examines the diversity, dynamism, and influence of women of African descent and women of color from the Global South, their resistance movements, their cultures over time in the realms of family, work, community, nations, and the natural environment. MoWRe's year-round exhibitions and programs include historical and contemporary objects, as well as commissioned art, sculptures, textiles, and pottery. Video and sound stations provide selections from historical and contemporary interviews, literature, proverbs, prayers, folk tales, songs, and oral epics from the Global South as well as the Diaspora. MoWRe has a special focus on promoting Transnational, including African, Chicana, Queer Feminist histories and traditions, among others. MoWRe is especially interested in promoting women's demonstrated capacity to reach across chasms of race, class, sexuality, geography, and religion to mount resistance and build movements for social justice.
The Museum is closed for the season, as we are rolling out a new Exhibit. We'll see you soon!
