Women’s History Month Collections Tour

Women have made significant contributions to the NYSM History Collection, documenting and preserving family and community history. Senior Historian and Curator Ashley Hopkins-Benton presents artifacts donated to the museum by women, including those given by Shakers, as well as by Pam Elam, who preserved women’s rights and LGBTQ+ rights artifacts, and Marian Weeber and Coreen Hallenbeck, who donated family objects from the late-19th and 20th centuries.
