HerStoria Magazine via Exact Editions

HerStoria Magazine via Exact Editions"HerStoria Magazine explores the past to discover how the other half lived, telling the story of ordinary - and extraordinary - women. Bringing you opinions about the female sex from across the centuries, and investigating the ways in which women responded and lived their lives. Each issue of HerStoria Magazine will contain listings and reviews of programmes, films, exhibitions, events and courses of interest to readers. The trial issue features a look at the history of women football fans from the 19C, a profile of England's most provocative Queen, costume design on the recent BBC Austen adaptation of Emma and 'Walking with Suffrage in Huddersfield'. Also included in this issue is the history and significance of ladies' golfing attire; 'Whore, harlot or witch?', did early modern witch trials really resemble early soap operas?; The pre-Raphaelite model turned first woman in Whitehall and 'They wouldn't do it if they could get married', HerStoria asks why the idea of women doctors was so shocking to so many Victorians"
