I’m currently researching for a project on social tagging in museums so I’ve been spending a lot of time on museum websites and I’ve come across some really cool stuff I didn’t know was out there. So naturally I wanted to share with you.
The Library of Congress is on Flickr! To celebrate International Women’s Day on March 8th they went back and tagged all their pictures with “iwd”–check out the complete array of photos that cover everything from suffragettes to women working during the war (here’s a few of my favorites).
The Smithsonian also has an online portrait exhibit Women of Our Time that showcases portraits of everyone from Susan Faludi to Sylvia Plath to Ella Fitzgerald to Martha Graham.
