About

We are Girl Museum, the first and only museum in the world dedicated to celebrating girls and girlhood. We started in 2009 as a bare-bones website and have expanded into an entirely virtual and volunteer-run museum that research and collects stories from and about girlhood, in the past and present, from across the globe. Through exhibitions, publications, and projects, we explore and document the unique experience of being born and growing up female.

Our vision is being a world class, socially responsible virtual museum that preserves, protects, and advances girl culture while supporting healthy, creative minds; safe bodies; and peaceful communities for girls worldwide. Our broad vision allows us to focus on bringing individual and community stories to the forefront, forgoing traditional curation in favor of allowing girls to speak for themselves.



As a virtual museum, we don’t have typical museum costs like building maintenance, temperature control, conservation materials, or insurance. We work from our homes and public spaces around the world, and dedicate all of our funds to producing awesome programs that fight misogyny in museums and culture.

In our first 10 years, we had…
  • An average 54,000 visitors per year.
  • Over 400 listeners to our GirlSpeak podcast each month.
  • A social media following of over 6,400 and growing.
We produce 3-4 exhibitions per year, various pop-up events and presentations, and ongoing community collaborations in podcasts, virtual blog-based projects, and contemporary art showcases. Our successes let us know that...

  1. Girl Museum should exist for a long time. Our model works, enabling people to access girls history and culture — and use it at home, in classrooms, and in public spaces — with just an Internet connection. We’re obsessed with our work — it’s fun, engaging, and built around a tribe who want to turn cultural heritage into the inclusive, gender-equal space it should be.
  2. We need to make Girl Museum self-sustaining for this to work. Infrequent fundraisers and one-time donations are not sustainable. That's where you can help.

Join the Girl Museum Sisterhood, available exclusively on Patreon. Monthly giving makes donating more budget-friendly for all of us, and helps us focus more on programs and less on staying open.



How We Use the Money
Our initial goal is $100/month. That money will be enough to sustain our basic operations. For every $1 we raise, we spend:
  • 57 cents on exhibits and programs,
  • 32 cents on operations (including website hosting), and
  • 11 cents on development and marketing.
With those covered, we can focus on producing high-quality programs and eventually p[ursue ‘stretch goals’ that lead to more physical pop-up events and presentations, advocacy for girls, and awareness-raising of just how INCREDIBLE girls are and continue to be. 

Ready to give girls the museum they deserve? Join for as little as $1 per month (that's LESS than a cup of coffee!) today.

Cheers,

Ashley E. Remer
Founder & Head Girl
Goals
$37.65 of $100 per month
When we reach $100 per month, we'll have covered our operating costs for the year. This means we can focus more of our efforts on programs, and less on having fundraisers.
