Membership benefits
Membership of WFHI grants exclusive access to voting meetings and opportunities to connect to our network of scholars. Membership is required to participate in the Women and the Silent Screen conferences, held biennially.

Membership dues are used to secure matching funding for the biennial conferences, and WFHI funds may also be distributed for purposes related to supporting the activities of our membership, such as conference registration subsidies and travel stipends.

Membership period
Members may join at any point in the two year cycle, but the membership period expires on the same date, regardless.

The current dues period runs from 1 January 2019 to 31 December 2020.

WFHI is a registered South Carolina nonprofit corporation with 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status in the United States.
