About

This site is for all those people who are sick of hearing But there ARE no women in that sector! when they ask why the media or other publicity downplays the role played by women in any given area. It aims to be a directory of women who are active in traditionally male arenas, whether that be political analysis or sport or thrash metal music.

It came about because the site’s author, who is a political blogger by inclination, was sick of being told that women political bloggers don’t exist – But they do! I am one! is, apparently, not a sufficient response. After compiling a number of blog posts on the subject, the straw finally broke the camel’s back on the 28th of February 2010. Which is over 90 years after women got the vote in this country…

We realise that this is a big project, and that it will probably never be finished. That doesn’t matter. What matters is that someone is making an effort to highlight the pervasiveness of the kyriarchy, and to do something about it.

If we’re missing someone off, let us know!
