Women’s History Month roundup

Plenty of history bloggers wrote something about women during Women’s History Month: these are just the ones I’ve noted so far. They’re in no particular order, except that I’ve divided them into posts about women’s/gender history (issues, methods, sources) and posts about individual women. If you know of something I’ve missed, just leave a link in the comments…

  1. Sharon, this stuff is amazing!

    Well, I’m still on the lookout for any more additions … :)

    It’s particularly great that there were so many medieval postings. Women’s History Month tends to be very ‘modern’ history-oriented (suffragettes, etc), so it’s a refreshing change.

  3. This is cool – thank you.

    Australia may be strange, but for the first three years the only practising historian on the WHM committee was a Medievalist (me). You can see the results on the back editions of the website. We had a great deal of fun.
