Gerda Lerner, a pioneering scholar of women’s history, looked back on several decades of research in women’s history and divided it into four phases, each building on the other to reach a complex understanding of the history of women. Lerner saw historians of the 1960s doing what she called “compensatory history" -- that is, looking for women and inserting them into male-dominated history. She compared historians of that period to Diogenes with his lantern, seeking simply to find the women.

Today, many historic sites are still wandering with their lanterns, trying to find the women’s stories represented there. Here are some suggestions to help you illuminate the lives of women at a historic place that matters to you, whether it is a historic site or your own home.

[Preservation Tips and Tools] The First Step for Putting Women Back in History

  1. 1. Seven Tips for PUTTING WOMEN BACK IN HISTORY
  2. 2. Every site has women’s history. Every single historic site is a women’s history site—including the ones you don’t think are. If you think not, look again, and think about what prejudices or blind spots you might bring to the process.
  3. 3. Include women in a wider context. Always put the women and girls at a site into a wider context of history. Begin to incorporate women and girls into your broader narrative even before you find specific stories pertaining to the women who were there.
  4. 4. Think about all of the women. Share how expectations for women varied by culture and time. Overall, women were essential to the economy but not always visible, so tell the whole (and often untold) story.
  5. 5. Use resources connected to women. Start by looking around! Assess what you already know about the women of the household. Don’t assume you have already unearthed everything. If you are near a college or university, find an enthusiastic intern to help.
  6. 6. See women in a more inclusive role. Think about women not only in relation to men, but also as independent actors. Historic places were complex and interconnected, just like human relationships. Show those organic relationships in your interpretation as well.
  7. 7. Avoid stereotypes. Do interpret needlework, cooking, and other “typical” women’s endeavors, but look beyond them too. Women were -- and are -- multi-dimensional.
  8. 8. Let the women speak for themselves. Use direct quotes from the women or from their contemporaries. Add well- documented stories to your narrative. Don’t make anything up or rely on legend; the real story is always more interesting.
  9. 9. The National Trust for Historic Preservation works to save America’s historic places. Preservation Tips & Tools helps others do the same in their own communities.
