Overview American Women in Radio and Television (AWRT) is the preeminent organization for women in the broadcasting industries. AWRT was founded in 1951 in response to the National Association of Broadcasters' decision to dissolve its women's division. Today, AWRT has over 2,000 members and is a powerful advocate, educator and supporter of women in communications. The AWRT records, which span the years 1947 to 1999, mainly document the organization's yearly national conventions.
