The history of women’s rugby in the United States is a fascinating, complex history that intersects with decades of social, cultural and economic history.

But when pouring through the artifacts of the past 50 years I am struck by the simple realization that the history of women’s rugby is the history of women’s friendships. It is the history of a sisterhood; young women working together to overcome great odds and to live as they play - with courage, passion and tenacity.

The USWRF Women’s History Museum provides a brief, representational, overview of women’s rugby in the United States. Visitors may enter 5 different halls, each displaying images, texts, links, videos, and audio from a decade of women’s rugby history. 

In each hall we have tried to represent diverse geographic regions, teams, important events and individuals but in a project of this scale we are bound to have gaps. We hope you’ll help us fill in those gaps by sending materials we can digitize, archive and display.
