    NATIONAL MUSEUM OF AMERICAN HISTORY
    Girlhood (It’s complicated) commemorates the anniversary of woman suffrage by exploring the concept of girlhood in the United States, but also how girls changed history in five areas: politics, education, work, health, and fashion. We argue that girlhood has an unexpected and complicated history and that girls, like suffragists, used their voices to make a difference. Currently, the exhibition is at the Smithsonian Institution. Girlhood will tour the country through the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service from 2023 through 2025. www.americanhistory.si.edu/girlhood
