MUSEUM International N°236:
Gender Perspectives on Cultural Heritage and Museums (2007)

Museum International N°236 proposes a gender-oriented approach to heritage, containing articles that offer an insight into the key role that women have played in shaping and preserving world cultural heritage in the past and the role they still play today. Chapter 1 explores women’s rights in relation to two UNESCO Conventions: Convention for the Safeguarding of the Intangible Cultural Heritage (2003) and the Convention on the Protection and Promotion of the Diversity of Cultural Expressions (2005). Chapter 2 describes the different levels at which women are present in the heritage Sector: from the destruction of perceptions and views of native women in the history of compiling collections. Chapter 3 reviews the experience of women in their commitment to creating museums in different cultures and regions of the world. Museum International N°236 provides the opportunity to redress an imbalance in recognising the role women play in culture and upholding their right to access it.
