I set this blog up to compliment my Twitter presence, and provide more information about some of the people and events I tweet about. Traditionally, history has been recorded from a male perspective, Historical Women on Twitter aims to redress balance by highlighting women, both famous/notorious and less so, and explaining more about their lives and the events they lived through, but without going down the route of calling it herstory, or taking an anti-male bias.

I hope you enjoy the blog, and do let me know if there is anything you would like to see covered here.
