Here are the women whom time has forgotten; those who didn't make it into the history books and those whom society failed to uphold as significant figures in their own right. Finally, we shall know their stories. The recognised format of On This Day in History has served as a platform for many an interesting, eminent person who changed the course of civilisation in their own unique way, but there appears to be a problem . . . Where are all the women? Only those the Establishment deems especially worthy have managed to squeeze their way into the historical accounts handed down through the generations. But this is not the whole story, not by half. On This Day She sets out to redress this imbalance and give voice to those the history books have failed to make room for: the good, the bad and everything in-between - this is a record of human existence at its most authentic. For all the women forgotten, maligned and erased, here's to you: it's time you were given the space you have always deserved.
