2005 Berkshire Conference
on the History of Women
The importance the Berkshire Conference has come to have in the last several decades mirrors the significant position women’s history and women’s studies has reached in the academy. Students who have majored or minored in women’s history and women’s studies are to be found in every conceivable profession. According to the American Historical Association, the concentration in women’s history and gender studies has been one of the fastest growing areas of the discipline. The development of the Berkshire Conference from an informal gathering of a few women in 1930 to a conference of thousands at a major university is an indication of that growth. - from History of The Berkshire Conference of Women Historians, founded 1930
