Reflections on ‘ Men must be educated and women must do it: the National Federation (later Union) of Women Teachers and contemporary feminism 1910 – 30’ (with Alison Oram )

This article was rather unusual in its origins. Alison Oram and I were asked to reflect on the article we had jointly written some 17 years previously. Although we were able to write a joint article in 1990 in some ways ‘bringing to light’ the work of feminists in the NUWT and their relationship to the state our intellectual paths have gone into different directions. Alison has since continued her pioneering work (outside a focus on teachers) on lesbian history and I too have moved away from writing about teachers. We both reflected on what we had been trying to do earlier and how it has influenced our subsequent work in different ways.
