About Us

We are a 501(c)3 that provides multimedia resources and education about amazing women of history.


Gal’s Guide mission is to provide an independent women’s history library to preserve, collect, share and champion women’s achievements and lessons learned. We will act as a catalyst to creators who utilize our resources to guide others to these amazing role models who have been waiting in the shadows of history for too long.
