Writing Women's History since the Renaissance is the first comprehensive history of women's historical writing since the sixteenth century, focusing particularly on the impact of feminism on history and the development of a distinctly woman-centred historiography. The book surveys the ways in which women participated in the ostensibly masculinist discipline of history before the rise of Women's Liberation, the development of 'women's history' in the 1970s, debates within feminist historiography and the development of specific fields of women's history, as well as the emergence of gender as a category of historical analysis.
