Mission Statement

To educate and inspire present and future generations about the experiences and contributions of women by collecting, preserving and interpreting the evidence of that experience.


The Women's Museum of California was founded in 1983 by Mary B. Maschal who recognized the gap in knowledge and lack of women role models in our accepted history and began collecting materials to teach the public. Now, a committed Board of Directors, Staff, and many volunteers and interns work on a variety of programs, events, and exhibits both at the museum and within the community of San Diego County. The WMC is one of 3 standalone Museums in the United States that focuses on the history, experiences, and contributions of women.
