Membership of the WHAI is open to all historians, researchers, teachers, students and people interested in women’s and gender history, in particular Irish women’s/gender history.  We have membership drawn from across Ireland, Northern Ireland, Britain, the USA and many other parts of the world.

Membership of the WHAI helps promote the study of and research into Irish women’s/gender history, an area of research which has expanded steadily since the foundation of the WHAI.  Membership also entitles members to regular updates on events, book publications, seminars, exhibitions, and other issues of interest in this area. Members can also circulate news of their activities through the newsletter and can apply for our prizes. Members also attend the WHAI annual conference at a reduced fee.

Please help us to keep women’s history in Ireland vibrant! Annual membership fees are: €30.00 for waged members  €15.00 for low waged/unemployed/students and €30.00 for international members.

Membership to the WHAI runs from April through March each year. All memberships expire on 31st March and are due to be paid by April 30th.
