Welcome to the Anna Howard Shaw Women's Center

The Women’s Center is named in honor of Dr. Anna Howard Shaw who attended Albion College from 1873-1875. She was an ardent feminist, educator, minister, medical doctor, orator, and suffragist.

The Center coordinates educational programming that promotes inclusiveness and pluralism and raises awareness of women’s and gender-related issues. Examples include programming on sexual harassment and sexual assault.

The most visible event sponsored by the Center is the Anna Howard Shaw Women’s History Month Program, designated each year to honor Dr. Shaw’s memory and highlight an important aspect of women’s lives. Other educational programs are co-sponsored with student organizations that share mutual interests.

Involvement in the Anna Howard Shaw Women’s Center is open to the entire College Community. There are many formal and informal ways for students, faculty, and staff to be involved in the Center’s activities.


The Albion College Anna Howard Shaw Women's Center leads, advocates, and collaborates to continuously improve the overall campus climate in regards to women's and gender issues and to promote women's empowerment and equity.
