The Women’s History Network is a national association and charity for the promotion of women’s history and the encouragement of women and men interested in women’s history. Following our establishment in 1991 we have grown year by year and today we are a UK national charity with members including working historians, researchers, independent scholars, teachers, librarians, and many other individuals both within academia and beyond. Indeed, the network reaches out to welcome women and men from any background who share a passion for women’s history.
The WHN is controlled by its members who elect a national steering committee who manage our activities and business. This conference has been organised by Professor Maggie Andrews and Janis Lomas, Co-Convenors for the Midlands Region of the Network.
