Abstract

Traditional historiography has excluded women not only inadvertently, but sometimes programmatically from the so-called ‘universal' or 'general' history. This article in the first number of the journal Gender & History discusses the development of women’s and gender history and the state of its theoretical debate until 1989. The author, German historian Gisela Bock, emphasizes that these debates encouraged reflections on what a gendered history should look like, what implications it holds for the rest of historiography, and what its relationship to a truly general history should be, a history in which women and men equally have a place.
