The Michigan Women's Studies Association, Inc.
The Michigan Women's Studies Association is an association of academic, professionals, and other interested persons dedicated to the task of upgrading and updating what is thought and taught about women in Michigan schools, colleges, and universities. MWSA is also principally engaged in the development of the Michigan Women's Historical Center and Hall of Fame in Lansing.

MWSA was founded in 1973 following a call for organization issued by five Michigan State University faculty members engaged in teaching a new course on "Women in American Society." It became the first academic association of its kind in the country.

MWSA promotes non-racist, non-sexist education in public schools, community colleges, and baccalaureate institutions in Michigan.

MWSA works for the elimination of bias and stereotyping in education and for the development of courses of study which will represent the accomplishments of all people.

MWSA encourages and promotes research by, for, and about women.

MWSA serves as a link between educators and the community through projects such as the Michigan Women's Historical Center and Hall of Fame.

For information about joining MWSA, write to the organization at 213 W. Malcolm X Street, Lansing, MI 48933, call 517-484-1880, or email us.
