Former first lady Laura Bush joined a push this week for the addition of a women’s history museum on the National Mall.

Speaking at the annual Women Making History Awards gala on Tuesday night, Bush said being honored at the event highlighted the need to “redouble our efforts to make sure there’s a women’s museum right here in our country,” The Washington Post reported.

“It’s really important to have a museum that focuses on women because half of the population is left out from American history,” Bush said. “We need to figure out how we can encourage women to run for office and to run for president.”

Bush was honored at the ceremony for advocacy work and contributions to inspiring women.

Hillary Clinton also paid tribute to Bush in a video featured at the event and reiterated a call for a museum in the nation’s capitol dedicated to women.
