The Michigan Women's Athletic Association of the University of Michigan, also known as M-Women, is a volunteer organization dedicated to the support and growth of women's varsity athletics at the University of Michigan. Founded in 1979, six years after women's varsity sports began at Michigan, M-Women strives to support and enhance opportunities for women in varsity athletics at Michigan.

The record group is arranged in two series, Historical and Administrative. The Historical series (1979-1996), is comprised of the club's Constitution, Bylaws and lists of the executive board members. It documents the development and transformation of the organization.

The second series, Administrative (1979-1996), outlines the club's administrative activities. The records offer a picture of how the organization functioned. The large interest taken in the club is shown by the membership lists. The extensive fundraising efforts that the M Women were involved in can be seen throughout the collection, as well as in the separate fundraising folder.
