Perhaps you already know us for our triennial meeting, The Berkshire Conference on the History of Women ("The Big Berks.") Launched in 1973, it is now the largest gathering of its kind in the world. Our 2017 meeting will be at Hofstra University, less than an hour's drive outside New York City.

We hope that when you learn more about us you will want to join at the level that is comfortable for you.
