HOH’s One-Minute Recess: Girl Power

Meryl Streep is coming! Sure, celebrities come to D.C. all the time, but it’s not everyday that a 16-time Oscar-nominated actress rolls into town.

The “Sophie’s Choice” star will join Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) and Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-N.Y.) at a dinner at the Mandarin Oriental on Tuesday to support the establishment of a permanent space on the National Mall for the National Women’s History Museum. The museum was founded in 1996 and has been searching for a home ever since. Collins and Maloney are sponsors of pending legislation that would allow the museum to buy land at the intersection of 12th Street and Independence Avenue Southwest.

No word on whether Streep would be one of the women honored in the museum.
