Discovering Women's History brings to light the work of a selection of German-speaking women journalists from the first half of the twentieth century who made significant contributions to German life and culture, yet are barely known today. The volume builds upon scholarship on women and culture by focusing on individual journalists who published both within and outside the periodicals of women's organizations and women's magazines, thus offering a sampling of the vastly different perspectives of German-speaking women journalists during this period. The contributors to the volume aim to raise awareness regarding the great range of viewpoints represented by women journalists as well as challenging gender-based stereotypes of women's writing that have traditionally tended to simplify the complexities of women's diverse experiences. The volume closes with Erika Mann's autobiographical fragment `I, of all People' published here for the first time in the original English.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"There is a wealth of detail in this collection, and much to discover. It is an important addition to the Women in German Literature series edited by Helen Watanabe-O'Kelly, and a fascinating contribution to European press history. Its most significant value lies in restoring these women journalists to the light of historical knowledge."
(European Journal of Communication, Vol. 30(1), 2015)

"This volume will be of particular use and interest to anyone working in the area of women's writing, the popular press or the literary and cultural history of the early twentieth century."
