Rep. Maloney Thanks NWHM CEO and President Joan Wages for Her Years of Service
Following the National Women's History Museum (NWHM) announcement that President and CEO Joan Bradley Wages will be stepping down from her position at the end of this year, Congresswoman Carolyn B. Maloney (NY-12), author of H.R. 19, the Smithsonian Women’s History Museum Act, thanked Wages for her dedication and tireless work.
“I have had the great privilege of not only working with Joan Wages towards finally establishing a physical museum dedicated to American women’s history on the National Mall, but also of calling her a friend. Joan made it her professional life’s work to bring women’s history out of the shadows and into the national spotlight and she has been an incredible advocate in the fight for a women’s museum. Thanks to her work and fundraising efforts, the American Museum of Women's History Congressional Commission was able to carry out its work and issue a bipartisan report unanimously recommending the establishment of such a museum. I cannot thank Joan enough for her friendship and steadfast support and advocacy for this project. I wish her the best of luck in her future endeavors.”
