Learn about the groundbreaking work of women in anthropology! We dive into rare archival collections held at the Smithsonian NMNH’s National Anthropological Archives and Human Studies Film Archives to tell stories about the important roles women have played in some of the discipline’s major breakthroughs. Get to know anthropologists such as ethnomusicologist Frances Densmore, Standing Rock Sioux anthropologist Beatrice Medicine, archaeologist Rose Solecki, or economic anthropologist Stanley Ann Dunham (mother of President Barack Obama).
