I can’t agree with that. As a feminist and a historian I believe that the term Herstory is not only necessary but self-explanatory. History is still a man’s subject that ignores and desdains women’s role in history.

"Schools have classes called “women’s studies,” and “African-American literature” because the standard for existence set by white men has yet to be rescinded in this age. “Normal” history is the history of a certain class of white people, from the perspective of men. All the other histories are precisely that: other."
