Hidden from History In 1929 in A Room of One’s Own, British writer, Virginia Woolf, asked what had happened to Shakespeare’s sister and why it was that her life and history had been overshadowed by that of her brother: 33 Krista Cowman and Louise A.

The relationship between the material and the discursive becomes the key line of enquiry. The study of literary ﬁction raises further questions about the relationship between past and present. The retrieval of past women writers and the interest in ‘authentic’ and realist texts that arose from secondwave feminism were not merely about the identiﬁcation of women’s cultural heritage. It was also assumed that realist texts could bring author and reader together across time because of their shared position, and indeed ‘experience’, as ‘women’ (Mills 1989).
The American historian Joan Kelly-Gadol enquired (1977), urging historians to think long and hard about the extent to which allegedly key historical moments were engaged with or perceived by their female contemporaries. By the late 1980s, the amount of historical writing to emerge from the feminist movement had been so great that the authors toyed with the idea of No Longer Invisible for the revised edition of Becoming Visible (Bridenthal et al. 1987). It was rejected, largely because it was felt that a new set of objectives was now emerging which was broadening the project of feminist history still further.
