Herstory: An Insider Tour of the National Museum of Psychology

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. University of Akron students, faculty, and staff receive free admission with a valid ZipCard. The Museum is open until 8 pm, so come early or stay after to explore more on your own.
