March aMUSEment: Herstory Tour

Thursday, March 21, 6pm

WashburnJohnson001

Women are often marginalized in traditional histories of science. In this insider’s tour, we will explore the National Museum of Psychology with a specific focus on “herstory.” We’ll share stories of how women were excluded from psychology, as well as how they changed and challenged the field.

Guided "herstory" tour begins at 6pm and is included with admission.  Museum admission rates are 50% off for the event.
