On Oct. 9, the National Women’s History Museum bestowed the third annual de Pizan Honors “honoring women from the past and present who have shaped history.” NWHM President and CEO Joan Wrages spoke at Arena Stage of the continuing hope to make this the first women’s history museum in a nation’s capital. The Henry Blackwell award went to Ken Burns for his PBS production on Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony. Other awardees included Phylicia Rashad and Washington’s own Denyce Graves. It was duly noted, as concerns the future museum, “If the Egyptians had to have the plans passed by Congress, there might not be pyramids.”
