Abstract

The essays in this journal are a collective effort in feminist scholarship. What is feminist scholarship? The intent and focus of feminist scholarship is wonderfully illustrated in a student's response to a handbill taped to my office door that announces: "What is Feminism? Come and Find Out. First Feminist Mass Meeting:' On moving closer, one reads: "February 17, 1914, 8:00 p.m., People's Institute.” The student commented in astonishment, "I didn't know there were feminists in 1914!" Without knowing it, the student captured a central aspect of feminist scholarship: feminist scholarship is scholarship that addresses the "I didn't knows" which surround the life histories and experiences of women who, in any time period, quest after equality.
