What is AWHI?
The Arkansas Women’s History Institute promotes the history of Arkansas women — past, present, and future. Through workshops, lectures, and symposiums, AWHI works to encourage the study of Arkansas women’s history by both scholars and the general public. The Susie Pryor Award, given annually at the Arkansas Historical Association Annual Meeting, honors the best unpublished essay on topics in Arkansas women’s history. Projects like the traveling exhibit, A Gathering of Women, celebrates the accomplishments of Arkansas women in the 20th century. Through the support of members and institutions in Arkansas and around country, AWHI is able to advance the diverse and rich story of Arkansas women.
