The WAWH 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 one of the largest of the regional women’s historical association in the United States. Although the majority of our members come from the Western United States, we have members from across the United States, Canada, and other countries and encourage people from any geographic area to join and participate in the organization.
Membership runs WAWH conference to WAWH conference. Partial credit is not given for a membership processed in the middle of a year.
