The Missouri History Museum has a number of ways for women, and anyone else, to learn and celebrate the history of women in our culture. But before you venture out to attend your chosen celebrations and activities, you may want to read up on the multitude of interesting female contributions from which we have benefited, as St. Louisans and Americans. “In Her Place: A Guide to St. Louis Women’s History” is a comprehensive guide to the contributions of St. Louis women, their efforts, places they lived and other historically referenced buildings of significance. In addition to your visits to the History Museum, you can take your own self-guided tours to the area’s historically highlighted venues, as outlined in the book. Purchase the book online here.

The museum offers a perspective of that struggle as it examines the evolution of the power of women through cultural, media influence beginning during WWII. “WONDER WOMAN! The Untold Story of American Superheroines” looks at the evolution of Wonder Woman and heroines that followed her throughout time, and how that shaped feminism in America.
