The Women's History Consortium, created by state statute (RCW 27.34.360) in 2005 as a Washington State Historical Society-led initiative, is dedicated to preserving and making available resources about Washington women’s history.
The Women’s History Consortium partners with the State Library, State Archives, Western Washington University, the University of Washington, The Evergreen State College, Central Washington University, Eastern Washington University, Washington State University, and the Northwest Museum of Arts & Culture to bring together their women’s history materials on this website. The Consortium is advised by a 15-member board appointed by the Governor and Washington State Legislature.
