Blog for us!

What is the Women’s History Network Blog?

The Women’s History Network blog promotes research in the field of women’s history. It exists as a forum for historians – at any career stage, and from any background – to showcase their own research, and to reflect on the nature of the discipline. The blog also exists as a space for heritage professionals, those involved in the curation of women’s history, and members of the public who are interested in the many and varied roles that women have played throughout history. We currently post two blogs a month on the Women’s History Network website and promote them on Twitter.

What sort of things can I write about?

We are very open to any, and all writing that celebrates women’s history. We are particularly interested in hearing from those from minoritized communities, or those who are researching the history of historically disenfranchised groups (e.g. working class women, women from Black, Asian, and Minority Ethnic Groups, those working on queer histories, those examining disabled lives).

Ideas for blogs include:

The blog is currently run and administered by Dr Kate Law, a committee member of the Women’s History Network. If you are interested in writing for us then please do get in touch with Kate by emailing: blog@womenshistorynetwork.org.

What format should my blog take?

Blog posts should be between 500-1000 words. When submitting your blog to Kate please also include a copyright free image (e.g from wikimedia commons), and a brief biography (100 words maximum) such as: Kate Law is a feminist historian of the British Empire. She specialises in the history of decolonisation in Southern Africa and her first book, Gendering The Settler State: White Women, Race, Liberalism, and Empire in Rhodesia, 1950-1980 was published in 2016.
