The Society for the History of Women in the Americas (SHAW) is a scholarly association dedicated to the historical investigation of women and gender in North America, South America and the Caribbean, either within or between nation-states and/or the northern or southern hemispheres.  Founded by Professor Jay Kleinberg in 2008, the society was originally called British Historians of Women in the Americas (BHWAs) but was renamed in 2011 to reflect a more international membership.
