About us:

If history was a Hollywood movie, the editing room floor would be littered with the stories of women clipped to make room for men’s stories. We’re here to tell those stories.

P.S. Every Monday you’ll get five of our newest or best stories. Read one a day, or read them all at once. Also, a grateful welcome to the new writers who bring more to this publication than I could have alone. Strength in unity! If you love History of Women, why not write with us?
