Have women been forgotten from the history books? Have their contributions to society been overlooked? For International Women’s Day, Google Arts & Culture poses that question: Where are the women? This year we’ve collaborated with more than 60 renowned institutions, including the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery, the U.S. National Museum of Women in the Arts, Museum of Contemporary Art Bogotá, The J. Paul Getty Museum, and the Archivo General de la Nación – México, to shine a light on the untold stories of women across the globe.
On March 8, the Women in Culture collection expanded to recognize trailblazers from history, pioneering women in the arts, women in science and technology, and community change makers around the world. The hub brings together all of Google Arts & Culture’s digital collections on women including the history of the Suffragette movement in the U.K., unheard stories of women in India, La Galleria Nazionale art exhibition on women artists, and the achievements of women and girls worldwide with the WOW Foundation.
