3 Biological Men Featured in National Women’s History Museum
Jenkins became the first openly transgender black woman elected to public office
The National Women’s History Museum (NWHM) website’s biography section has featured three biological males who identify as females.
The three featured biographiesare of trans rights activists Cecilia Chung and Andrea Jenkins, and President Joe Biden’s Assistant Secretary of Health Rachel Levine.
Jenkins became the first openly transgender black woman elected to public office in the U.S. in 2017.
Chung, a former drug addict who now lives openly with HIV, is the senior director of strategic initiatives and evaluation at the Transgender Law Center, “the largest national trans-led organization advocating for a world in which all people are free to define themselves and their futures.”
Levine, recently called “gender-affirming care” for youth, a far-left euphemism for child mutilation, a “lifesaving” and medical necessity.

“Gender affirming care is lifesaving, medically necessary, age-appropriate, and a critical tool for health care providers,” Levine said.
The three transgenders are featured on the site’s “Biographies” page, which reads:
"Women have always played an active role in history. Explore some of the historical pioneers and contemporary newsmakers that continue to impact the world.
New biographies are added regularly, so check back to discover inspiring new stories!"
NWHM, founded in 1996, boasts of an online museum that “researches, collects and exhibits the contributions of women to the social, cultural, economic and political life of our nation in a context of world history.”
According to its website, the museum “brings to life the countless untold stories of women throughout history, and serves as a space for all to inspire, experience, collaborate, and amplify women’s impact — past, present, and future.”
It also claims to “strive to fundamentally change the way women and girls see their potential and power.”
Three men. The National Women's History Museum is - literally, explicitly, in the most basic way - erasing women from history. pic.twitter.com/J6U9TXMsCb— Omri Ceren (@omriceren) July 21, 2022
The museum’s decision to feature males to celebrate women who are “historical pioneers” and “contemporary newsmakers that continue to impact the world,” was met with ridicule on social media.
Omri Ceren, the national security adviser for Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) wrote:

One Twitter user wrote:
“It appears the National Women’s History Museum (US) couldn’t find 3 women to feature on their website, opting instead to appease the Gender Gods with this offering."
“As a woman, I am offended by this."
