IAWMs definisjon av "kvinnemuseer og deres oppgaver"

“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.”

Resolution of the 1st International Congress for Women’s Museums in Merano 2008

IAWMs mål og hensikt

1. Exchange, network, global co-operation of the Women’s Museums, and mutual support. We want to affirm female solidarity by affirming women’s rights.

2. To promote women’s and gender museums and to stand united for the advocacy of gender-democratic societies. Women’s museums are important for women’s education, empowerment and self-confidence. They provide awareness training, possibilities for independent actions and tools to overcome discrimination.

3. To achieve international recognition in the world of museums and to strengthen the acceptance of women’s museums worldwide. It aims to advocate for necessary support (such as staff and finances) for museums within the Association.

Women are the Ones who write the History of the World! There has to be a Women’s Museum in every Country of this World.
