“Women’s Museums are diverse; they reflect political, cultural, artistic, economic, and social roles and situations of women in the past and present. They preserve and generate women’s cultures, remove prejudices and contribute to the respect of women and human rights. They are a mirror of society and also of the changing of the world.”
