WCML Mission

The Women’s Caucus for the Modern Languages is an allied organization of the Modern Language Association that organizes sessions at each annual meeting focusing on professional issues of concern to women. The Women’s Caucus for the Modern Languages also sponsors the Florence Howe Award for outstanding feminist scholarship and the Annette Kolodny graduate student travel grant.

WCML cosponsors a cash bar and business meeting at the MLA convention with Feministas Unidas, Women in French, and Women in German, where the winners of the Florence Howe Award for outstanding feminist scholarship and the Annette Kolodny graduate student travel grant are announced.
