Today, we can visit museums of all kinds and conditions: museums about water, spoon’s museum, museums about flags, about the wagons of the ice cream, birds museums, computers, etc. Ultimately, museums shows a myriad of issues to the public that wants them to visit. Just to put in the search engine of Web sites the word ‘museum’ then will appear to your view dozens and dozens of museums around the world, each new discovery will be as unique as the previous one. However, there are no many museums devoted to women as monographic content. The museums that show case content respond to the need to show specific elements of the topic under analysis Scientific and historical. Museums devoted to the man there are many, from which was man of the Paris Trocadéro Mankind Museum, now known as Quai Branly Museum (renewed and placed little further away), or the Museum of Man in San Diego, etc. The globe offers a wide variety of museums dedicated to the male part of the story, but there is nothing specific to tell and teach about women?
We can draw a parallel line – once overcome this intrigue upon the special museums dedicated to women – almost non-existent, to discover the reasons for this serious absence, and more than serious: are those that explain the history of art has paragraph systematically to the women of his existential path, because art, as sovereign cognac, seemed to be men… The treatment of the feminine in museology is pending and should urge to find a solution for this unforgivable generalized absence. For many should not be so urgent because they are not even aware of the vacuum. The powers that tend to be men, and you know. Is this vacuum that We want to build a museological solution on the content of gender and in particular, of the feminine.
The feminine is an approach that encompasses many variants and museological approaches, but what interested us most now is to respond to questions and statements that could be answered from that now imagined Museum. They are many, many issues to formulate and needing to show universal answers clear and adapted to any condition of understanding, for all audiences. Perhaps most important of all this effort that should be done immediately, would explain why has been given throughout the history of man that persistent marginalisation from masculine to feminine. Why women been denied systematically its role or absence of the? same in history? The women’s Museum, call it, should try to spread knowledge more accurate and rigorous of how differences and biological similarities between the sexes have always been the basis on which has been structured throughout evolution induced by the man himself. In short, in this Museum, now imagined, we insist, it is necessary in all places of the world. It is necessary to generate a museological discourse through which we can understand the role played by women in the evolution of the species, until you reach the place that now occupies in the history. And every place in the world should be fair when explaining the situation (is not the same place that women hold of Finland to Senegal in their respective countries, or Yes?). Ultimately, these museums on the women of the world, should be forced construction in each of the countries, and would have the fundamental mission of explaining to the children, and for all those who want to learn, that men and women are equal in all, except, obviously, in the biological role that each plays in the maintenance of species (human reproduction).
Museums have a huge universal training responsibility. All these institutions must commit inescapable provoke reflection on life, human visitors and, in turn, on the knowledge that all of us may be aware and make this world a better place to live in equality. Da same concerned Museum, the objective must always be the same: humanize – make that men and women are better people when we go out into the street after visiting them. There are issues, such as the place that has held and holds women in the world, that need to be addressed individually by its complexity, and because it required a great effort of sensitivity and delicacy. A museology wishing to focus their attention on feminine, must contemplate topics many collaterals, such as the relationship of women and power, as well as show what changes are occurring today in different parts of the world in relation to the role played by women: that is taking place in Abu Dhabi and that takes place in the Netherlands or Canada todayfor example. Or how, for example, ideological, not just political differences, but also religious related with cause differences between man and woman, they exist today. The brief description of this imagined women’s Museum should be, already for finishing: a place where to start to extricate ourselves, now and forever, the stereotypes of gender (who have them) by adjusting our culture and our reasoning ability to achieve equality between the sexes is made possible and, taking advantage of since we, instil respect for what is different.
