Women's History Review

Women's History Review is a major international journal whose aim is to provide a forum for the publication of new scholarly articles in the rapidly expanding field of women's history. The time span covered by the journal includes the 19th and 20th centuries as well as earlier times. The journal seeks to publish contributions from a range of disciplines (for example, women's studies, history, sociology, cultural studies, literature, political science, anthropology and philosophy) that further feminist knowledge and debate about women and/or gender relations in history. The Editors welcome a variety of approaches from people from different countries and backgrounds. In addition to main articles the journal also publishes shorter Viewpoints that are possibly based on the life experiences, ideas and views of the writer and may be more polemic in tone. A substantial Book Reviews section is normally included in each issue.

6 issues per year.
