Ilic, Melanie J (2001) Writing Women In: New Approaches to Russian and Soviet History. In: Re-presenting the Past: Women and History. Longman Pearson Education, Harlow, pp. 145-161. ISBN 058238219XFull text not available from this repository.
Feminist history continues to change the way history is written, and in doing so changes our view of the past. The authors of this collection explore how issues of sexuality, class, nationalism and colonialism informed the ways in which women were represented and continue to be represented in history. They show the ways in which women have been excluded, silenced and misrepresented in stories of the past, and how women's lives have been distorted or simplified in conventional historical accounts. Together, they suggest fresh ways of approaching women's history, and use examples of work in new areas of research such as women's health and leisure in order to demonstrate the effectiveness of the various methodologies being proposed.
