Do you subscribe to the concept of "herstory"?

Since most of codified history is predominantly male-centric (since most of the greats were men indeed), women are kind of treated like some vaguely present element of the background, their lives hardly ever discussed and little focus put on them in historical studies.

The solution? "Herstory". Not retelling the history, mind you, simply revisiting it from the female perspective. After all, behind each and every great man a woman schemed like crazy...

Absolutely. It's academically significant in a variety of ways to research the status and incluence of the half of the human population throughout history that is generally not as loud and well recorded.

That being said, herstory is a dumb name, and if the goal is just to retroactively invent significance for women then that is obviously academically reprehensible.

It was at the height of the Franco Prussian war that Lady Ardington began her attempts at the most intricate lace doily yet known to the world.

That's basically what they are. For example, could women have a revolution or fight a war? Of course not, men wouldn't even kill them; they would just turn them into sex slaves. Any thing they "accomplish" is by the forbearance, and usually actual actions, of men.

No. I don't think female perspectives are historically relevant.

Most western females have naught but enjoyed the comfort and priveleges rendered unto to them by the sweat and bloodshed of their male counterparts.

if it makes them happy sure, go for it. As long as they don't try to change existing history I do not care about how people choose to look at history.

Most of them managed to shut the fuck up, stay submissive and care for the children, which gave their husbands tremendous amounts of time spent focusing, building upon and improving comfort, technology, arts, justice and all that was once the pride and joy of the Western world.

They deserved it then, but they don't anymore.

Come now, fellows anons. Don't let your sex cuck you into ignorance. There's much you don't know because nobody cared to record the female perspective you're so keen on belittling.
