The year was 1980. The Episcopal Church was groaning into a new and different existence. From an elegant, staid, traditional, manly presence, the Church took a deep breath and embraced a radical direction, and the role of women began to grow and impact what the Episcopal Church would become. In that year of 1980, a young and fearless group of women looked around and realized that the story of how the women had penetrated and demanded a new place in the life of the Episcopal Church needed to be documented. There were stories that needed telling, and women wanted to tell these stories. They needed money to support their research and travel, time to write and find publishers, and the imagination to explore stories that had yet to be uncovered. The EWHP founders were capable and had the drive and interest to capture the stories of the women who had laid the foundation of The Episcopal Church. So, they started a new organization, the Episcopal Women’s History Project.
