Women at the Forefront of Science, Technology, Engineering and
On display through February 2014
Since the passage of Title IX,
women remain disproportionately underrepresented in science, technology,
engineering and math (STEM). The new exhibit STEMinists aims to
combat barriers remaining to women’s equal participation in STEM fields
by introducing girls to what it means to work in a STEM field,
successful Michigan women role models working in STEM, and steps to
pursue their interest in STEM fields. Increasing the number of women in
STEM fields is good for everyone—it has the potential to help address
the wage gap between men and women and increase the competitiveness of
the United States in the global economy.
Not Just a Man's
War: Michigan Women and the Civil War
In celebration of the
150th anniversary of the Civil War, discover the unique contributions
made by Michigan women. Michigan women were on the frontline during the
Civil War serving as as nurses in hospitals and on the battlefield. Some
bold women even disguised themselves as men to serve in battle. And then
there is the story of the home front, which did not remain static during
the four long years of war. Women took on new roles and responsibilities
left behind by men: they ran businesses, tended farms, raised families,
and sent their support in the form of supplies, letters, and money--
often not knowing the condition of their soldier husband, father,
sweetheart, brother, or son.
