#1 Visit The National Museum Of Women In The Arts

The only museum solely dedicated to championing women through the arts has reopened its doors with improved interior and exterior spaces, new mechanical systems, enhanced amenities and accessibility, enlarged gallery space, and additional research & education space. The reopening also includes a captivating exhibit known as In Focus, a close-up look into the practices and perspectives of eight contemporary collection artists, as well as numerous other new displays.

#2 Celebrate Female Inventors

The National Museum of American History celebrates women inventors who have been overlooked or undervalued in US society. This exclusive (and timely) exhibit highlights the accomplishments, challenges, and motivations of some of the most important inventors of the 20th- and 21st century. Visitors can marvel at wall murals (with text in English and Spanish) and the creativity & inspiration of women inventors.

#3 See A One-Woman Show

Debuted virtually to DC audiences in 2021, this one-woman piece is finally coming home after a successful national tour. In association with the Woolly Mammoth Theatre Company, the Folger Theatre hosts Mohegan theatre-maker Madeline Sayet’s riveting tale. Set in 2015, Where We Belong follows Sayet on a voyage to England to pursue a PhD in Shakespeare. She finds a country that will not acknowledge its own role in colonialism just as the Brexit vote is set to occur. Madeline’s story echoes the journey taken by her ancestors in the 1700s following treatise betrayals in the US, and in turn, presents what it means to live and belong in a world increasingly globalized.

#4 Catch A Concert

On March 3rd from 1–4:45 PM, enjoy a special concert from the US Army Band “Pershing’s Own,” arranged for Women’s History Month. There will be an array of styles and genres represented, with a special focus on female musicians. Before the concert, there will be a documentary film screening and opening remarks, and it will be followed by an open house tour of the memorial.

#5 Relax & Empower

This year, join Balian Springs for its International Women’s Day Celebration on March 8th from 9 AM – 9:30 PM. This event will combine relaxation with empowerment. Enjoy a calendar of activities including meditation and breathwork, a wine tasting, an oracle reading, and hot yoga, plus workshops on topics like self-love, “reclaiming self,” and “cherishing our inner beauty.”

#6 Attend A Festival

At the Women’s History Month Festival hosted by the National Portrait Gallery on March 9th, visitors can see portraits of influential women through history, including Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Beyoncé, and Oprah. Don’t miss out on this lineup of exclusive performances and workshops from the Washington Ballet, plus art activities, scavenger hunts, and other fun activities!
