Western Association of Women Historians

National and regional ties

The WAWH supports the maintenance of regional and national ties. We therefore maintain a direct link with the American Historical Association (AHA) Committee on Women Historians. Several WAWH officers also serve on the Coordinating Council for Women in History (CCWH), the caucus within the AHA that provides a voice in determining policy for the national organization.

The WAWH also has strong ties with the Pacific Coast Branch of the AHA, through active participation in the annual meeting, sponsoring a panel, and holding a luncheon meeting with a featured guest speaker.

The Western Association of Women Historians was founded in 1969 to promote the interests of women historians both in academic settings and in the field of history generally.

Drawing scholars from the Western states, the WAWH is the largest of the regional women's historical associations in the U.S.

The WAWH encourages the participation of academic historians and independent scholars, and welcomes literary scholars and art, theater, and film specialists.
