From the PR to my e-mail and now on to you.

The International Museum of Women is thrilled to announce the launch of our new, flagship exhibition MAMA: Motherhood Around the Globe!

MAMA explores the realities and ideas of a new global generation of mothers through art, stories, and powerful new voices. The exhibition aims to turn inspiration into action, helping fuel a worldwide movement for mothers’ human rights and advances in maternal health. Check it out today! In MAMA, you’ll find:

Our debut Topic Gallery, Mama to Be?, which is rich with art, stories, essays, and ideas about how women around the world are addressing the issue of if, how, and when to become a mother. New Topic Galleries will launch monthly—stay tuned!

An opportunity to Take the Maternal Health Pledge to improve maternal mortality rates globally, an initiative between IMOW and the maternal health organization Every Mother Counts.
