The Women’s Museum of California will be hosting their annual benefit dinner on Thursday, November 15th in Liberty Station.
Join the Museum for a multi-course dinner with the theme of wine, cheese, and chocolate. The dinner will be held at Moniker General’s newest space, Building 177.
During the evening the Museum will be honoring women’s rights activist, Krista Suh, who started the Pussyhat Project, now a symbol of female empowerment across our country. Krista Suh is a screenwriter, craftivist, artist, activist and co-creator of the Pussyhat and Evil Eye Gloves. Her mission is to make the world a safer place for women and help everyone validate their own creativity, femininity, and intuition. Krista is a powerful voice for doing more as she inspires others to create their own rules for living, and even a movement of their own, all with gusto, purpose, and joy.
The benefit dinner is the largest fundraiser for the Women’s Museum of California. This annual event helps the museum achieve its mission of educating and inspiring current and future generations about the contributions of women throughout history to today. Founded in 1983 by Mary Maschal the Women’s Museum of California has grown from a small collection of historical memorabilia to a full-fledged Museum preserving women’s stories, Maschal’s motivation for starting the Museum was to teach girls and boys that women are equally capable as men to lead and find success and the many untold stories of women throughout history will inspire young people to do whatever it is they want to do.
35 years later, the Women’s Museum welcomes 10,000 visitors a year, mentors over a hundred student interns, produces multiple original each year and hosts monthly educational programming to further inspire the public on women’s stories and issues.
Proceeds from the event support original exhibits and educational programs in the new year. The Women’s Museum is a nonprofit organization featuring exhibits on women’s history and art; monthly educational programming; a library and research archive; and provide speakers and exhibits for schools, libraries and community organizations. They are the only dedicated Women’s Museum in California, and one of only five nationally.
We can’t wait to see what next year at the Museum will bring, including new exhibits and programming as well as our annual events such as the San Diego Women’s Hall of Fame, Women’s Film Festival, and Suffrage Parade.
By attending the Benefit Dinner guests become a vital part of helping the Women’s Museum achieve Mary Maschal’s mission of inspiring future generations with stories of women past and present.
