Women of Our Time

Twentieth-Century Photographs from National Portrait Gallery

I believe that providing long-distance access to their collections is one of the most important roles of the Smithsonian Institution today. Not everyone can visit Washington, DC to visit all the wonderful museums located there. While online galleries are certainly a lesser experience, they allow nearly anyone to delve into the exhibits and artifacts held within. More amazing collections are available the the Library of Congress's American Memory Web Site.

The gallery is a collection of women's portraits along with brief biographies and some history of the photo itself. The photos run the gamut from Shirley Temple to Rosa Parks.

This site requires Flash and works best on broadband connections (Cable/DSL).
