I’m a freelance writer and editor, mother to two small children, and sporadically keen investigator of our family history. I started blogging because I wanted to read more about feminism and women’s history, but what with babies and work and whatnot, was really struggling to find the energy and focus.
Inspired by a Mumsnet discussion, I thought I’d try taking a woman-centered approach to the family history research and see whether that got things moving.
I’ve ended up reading some excellent history books written by women, probably more so than straight feminist theory, but I count that as reasonable progress. I’m not really posting here at the moment, but have just renewed the domain for another year, so maybe it’s not quite dead yet.
