The History of Women and the Place of Women in History

Throughout history, and especially in the historiographical tradition of the 19th century and part of the 20th century, women were not part of the historical narrative.

They were absent from the different events and processes, being an ahistorical and invisible subject.

As Simone de Beauvoir (1906-1986) pointed out in her book The Second Sex (1949): “Women did not have any historical project“.

Thus, women only appeared in cases where there was no other option but to name them.

On many occasions, these women were surrounded by negative labels, their image was manipulated and they were blamed for the events that unfolded, claiming that they had deviated from their role as women, in other words, that they had broken the established norms.
