The Journal of Women's History is the first journal devoted exclusively to the international field of women's history. For the journal, the contested term "feminist" has come to mean a recognition that gender is an important category of analysis; an assertion that women as a category have been historically disadvantaged relative to men of their race, class, ethnicity, or sexual identity; and a commitment to changing the structures that systematically privilege men over women. It does not attempt to impose one feminist "line" but recognizes the multiple perspectives captured by the term "feminisms." Its guiding principle is a belief that the divide between "women's history" and "gender history" can be, and is, bridged by work on women that is sensitive to the particular historical constructions of gender that shape and are shaped by women's experience.
