HerStoria magazine specialises in “History that puts woman in her place”, as in, right back in the centre of the story.

The latest issue includes features on the myth and reality of Lady Godiva, fashion and exploitation in the 19th century hair trade, the ‘romantic friendship’ between the Ladies of Llangollen and an interview with Nell Leyshon (the first woman playwright to have a performance at the Globe theatre, with her farce Bedlam).

To win a free online subscription to HerStoria, just use the comments to tell us about your favourite underrecognised woman in history and why you like her. Points for originality.

No more than 250 words please. The competition closes on Tuesday 5 October, 9pm (a week from today).
