Situated on 4.2 acres of land at the gateway to Arlington National Cemetery, the Women's Memorial is the nation's first major memorial honoring the nearly 2 million women who have served with or in our nation's armed forces.

The Memorial's Education Center, with its 16 exhibit alcoves, memorializes the collective and individual histories of servicewomen, from the American Revolution to the present. This 33,000 square foot facility houses a 196-seat theater, a computerized interactive Register; a Hall of Honor; conference room; gift shop and exhibit gallery.

President Reagan signed legislation on November 6, 1986, authorizing the Women's Memorial to be built in Washington, DC or its environs. The Memorial is at the historic Grand Entrance and Hemicycle of Arlington National Cemetery. The Hemicycle, dedicated in 1932, was restored and renovated by the Women In Military Service For America Memorial Foundation and hailed as an elegant solution to integrating a new purpose with an historic structure. An essential design element is the creative and imaginative use of water, light and passage as symbols of women's military accomplishments. Text and images amplify these accomplishments as the story of servicewomen past and present unfolds at the Women's Memorial.
