ASWM began as an informal meeting in 2002, and since then has grown to an international organization that offers annual events, relevant resources, and member services.
In 2009 we began a program of awards to recognize excellence in the arts, leadership and scholarship:
- The Demeter Award for Leadership in Women’s Spirituality is given on alternate years; past winners are Margot Adler (2010) and Charlene Spretnak (2012).
- The Brigit Award for Excellence in the Arts was awarded to Layne Redmond in 2011, Lydia Ruyle in 2013 and the women of We’Moon in 2015.
- Dr. Heide Goettner-Abendroth received the Saga Special Recognition in Women’s History in 2012.
- Our Kore Award is given to the best dissertation in the area of women and mythology.
