House Administration Explores Creation of Women's History Museum

Miller wanted to know if the group, which has targeted the National Mall as its desired location, would consider locations farther away from the choice real estate. She mentioned the soon-to-be-vacant FBI headquarters on Pennsylvania Avenue Northwest and extra space available for lease in the Government Printing Office’s North Capitol Street building as two potential spots.

Wages tied that question back to the suffragettes.

Women earned the right to vote after the group that will be honored in the National Mall’s next addition — the National Museum of African American History and Culture — so, by her logic, “the last spot is just being saved for us.”
