HerStoria, History With Visible Women

Despite David Starkey's pompous accusation that history is becoming "feminised" it is actually becoming equalised - in that it is no longer the mirror with which white men can see themselves as main players, but one which shows all of the nuanced characters of our times.

, the recently launched history magazine giving voice and visibility to the lives and lifestyles of women through history, is papery proof of this change.

Covering Victorian Lady travellers, women's workhouse experiences, reactions to great changes in society and a look at women missing from the retelling of history, it is a bastion of academia and general interest and I recommend you check it out.
