Welcome to the web home of the Benzie Area Women's History Project. This group, based in Benzie County, Michigan, is comprised of area women dedicated to educating ourselves and others about the women of our past, women whose voices are not always heard.

For the last 34 years we've presented an annual event, usually held in March, celebrating women's history. This year is a little different in that we are not creating an independent event. Instead we are collaborating with the Benzie Area Historical Society and with Off The Page for events in June and July. Find out more on the women's history day page.

If you'd like to be on our email list, or to send us your comments or suggestions, please see the contact page.

We also fund a yearly scholarship for a non-traditional female student at Northwestern Michigan College.
