Cortez Masto Cosponsors Bill to Create an American Women's History Museum

Statement

Date: Nov. 17, 2020
Location: Washington, DC

U.S. Senator Catherine Cortez Masto (D-Nev.) joined U.S. Senators Susan Collins (R-Maine) and Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) in cosponsoring the Smithsonian American Women's History Museum Act, a bipartisan bill to establish an American women's history museum in our nation's capital.

"Our country's success depends on our understanding of its history. Yet, too often, the contributions, accomplishments, challenges and influence of women across generations have been underrepresented in our history books and museums. It's time for Congress to create a Smithsonian museum that would amplify the voices of women and showcase the many stories of women's resilience, advocacy, courage and innovation since the start of our nation. This museum will help make sure the next generation of leaders has a dedicated place to learn about and celebrate how women have helped shape America."

Background

Senator Cortez Masto is a cosponsor of the National Museum of the American Latino Act, which would establish a museum recognizing Latinos within the Smithsonian Institution. She's also introduced the Women's History and Nineteenth Amendment Centennial Quarter Dollar Coin Program Act, which would create a new series of commemorative circulating coins to highlight women suffragists and other trailblazers from each state, the District of Columbia and territory in the United States.
