Philippa talks about a feminist history magazine.

Last June, Catherine mentioned a new women’s magazine, called HerStoria, and as I’ve recently subscribed I thought it was worth mentioning again, because it looks great!

Look at history from a female perspective and everything changes. HerStoria magazine in print, and Discover Women’s History Web online, will entertain, inform and create a community. We’ll turn a kaleidoscope on the past to uncover a different history – women’s history – and celebrate the women who made it.

Published in the UK, HerStoria magazine is a high quality print magazine with 4 issues each year, Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter.

Having received my copies (the latest one and a back issue) I can tell you that it looks like a really good quality, well-researched and inspirational publication. We get the stories that history has hidden from us, as women, and the fact that people are writing these down and making them available means that the stories are getting out, and should remain UNhidden from now on.

With a few memorable exceptions, many feminist magazines only last a short while, and I’m very happy to be contributing to keeping this one alive, by subscribing!
