(March 15-July 29) Spanning the centuries
There are lots of ways to celebrate Women’s History Month and one of them is by appreciating exceptional art made by the fairer sex. Northwest Washington’s National Museum of Women in the Arts is here to help. Inside the museum you’ll find Royalists to Romantics -- featuring seldom-seen works on loan from the Louvre, Versailles, and other national French collections. Outside the museum you’ll see a highly textured sculpture made of recycled tires by New York-artist Chakaia Booker.

(March 15-30) Mean Girls
Girls! Nice Doesn’t Cut It brings a gang of young girls to Northwest’s Gallery 555dc through the end of the month. Local painter Jackie Hoysted presents portraits of beautiful, stylish debutants who possess warrior-like confidence.

(March 16-17) The Vagina Monologues
V-Day DC stages its fifth annual reading of The Vagina Monologues this Friday and Saturday. Eve Ensler’s game-changing play is performed at Northwest’s Spooky Action Theater to raise awareness and funds to end violence against women in Haiti.
