Honestly, you continue to rail on MINUSCULE amounts of federal funding for museums when the war in Afghanistan costs $289 million PER DAY?! How very ignorant and short sighted.
Might I also say that $1 million over the course of 15 years is inexpensive in the extreme for a museum of whatever variety.
Not only is this opinion piece lacking in research and courtesy, but also in common sense. There are several projects currently receiving federal funding which are narrow in scope and too far for most US citizens to visit. They continue to receive funding. I'm certainly not asking to defund any facilities that I don't have an interest in seeing. Simply because a thing is not widely popular does not mean is is worthy of derision or relegation to history books. Your piece, sir, proposes that the entire nation should be held in ignorance; that no one should hear about this important part of women's history. You proport only those things you deem worthy ought to receive federal funding. Were that the case, there are several items in the federal budget I would like to have removed.
