The Center for Colorado Women’s History at Byers-Evans House is the first state museum focused on the past, present and future achievements of Colorado women.

The Center is a space for adventurous dialogue and challenging questions that:
- Generate new knowledge and understandings of women’s role in history – within Colorado and beyond
- Reflect the diverse audiences of Colorado
- Share and collect stories that represent the lives and work of all women in Colorado’s past and present
- Amplify stories of the women who work within communities
- Connect local stories to the broader stories of women’s history worldwide.
Women's History Fall Fellowship
We are currently seeking proposals for the 2020 Fall Fellowship!
We invite scholars, activists, artists, musicians, writers, and others to apply. Over the course of the fall, our Fellows are given the resources and space to produce a project of some kind to spread knowledge and understanding of women's history. This project can be almost anything. In the past we've had Fellows create novellas, poetry collection, museum exhibits, and even educational coloring books.
For more information and to learn how to submit an application, please visit the Fall Fellowship web page. The deadline for submissions is March 31.
Women’s Vote Centennial Symposium
In conjunction with the Women’s Vote Centennial Colorado // 2020, History Colorado will be holding the Colorado Women’s Vote Centennial Symposium on February 22, 2020, from 8 am to 5 pm at the History Colorado Center.
The symposium is open to the public and seeks to impact the community by providing a forum for sharing new research and creative work on the topic of women’s suffrage, examining the interpretation and representation of the movement, and sharing newly collected artifacts and archives. The mission of this event is to inspire educators, museum professionals, researchers, artists, writers and individuals from all walks of life to approach women’s suffrage history with a broader and more critical lens, to challenge the iconic narratives and myths often associated with this history and to examine the intersections of race, gender, socio-economic conditions, religion and citizenship in the Colorado and national women’s suffrage campaign.
For more information and to submit a panel proposal, please visit the Symposium web page. The deadline for submissions is January 10.
