A bipartisan bill that aims to establish a National Women's History Museum in Washington, D.C. is getting a push from women in Congress.
The measure would establish a commission to recommend locations and funding sources for the museum.
One of the bill's sponsors is Rep. Carolyn Maloney, who said that that the museum would be a comprehensive history of women's contributions to the nation.
"Imagine how much more inspired, confident and successful women in general could be if our national narrative included equal proportion of women stories," Maloney said. "I firmly believe we wouldn't be trying to lean in. We would already be in."
The bill has been introduced in the House and Senate.
If it passes, the commission outlines will be privately funded by the nonprofit National Women's History Museum Incorporated.
