Australian Women's History in Australian Feminist Periodicals 1971-1988 Mary Spongberg , 2008 single work criticism
— Appears in: History Australia , December vol. 5 no. 3 2008; (p. 73.1-73.16)
'This article traces the history of feminist periodical publishing in this country between 1970 and 1988 and its role in the development of Australian women's history. It show that a distinctly Australian feminist historiography developed within the pages of journals such as Refractory Girl, Hecate and Australian Feminist Studies. While most studies of the evolution of Australian women's history since the 1970s signal the importance of such journals, there has to date been no major study of their history or their influence within Australian historiography.
