The close relationship between feminism and history has resulted in peaks in the production of feminist histories which coincide with high levels of feminist activity. In many instances, feminists have conceived the research and writing of history as a political act in itself. This article investigates some of the contradictions and omission which can arise when feminism attempts to engage with its own past. Through a close examination of the coverage of the suffrage movement in the British feminist periodical Spare Rib, the article considers the difficulties of constructing alternative versions of history and of integrating new knowledge into broader historical narratives.
