In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content:

Notice to Contrtbutors The editors invite submission of article-length manuscripts (not exceeding 10,000 words including endnotes, 35 pages in length). We are interested in articles based on original empirical research as well as reflections on conceptual, theoretical, and methodological issues in women's history. The JOURNAL welcomes letters to the editor in response to recent articles. Please send four copies of manuscripts along with an abstract of your article, no more than 150 words giving the argument and significance of your article, to: LeUa J. Rupp, Editor, THE JOURNAL OF WOMEN'S HISTORY, c/o Department of History, The Ohio State University, 230 West 17th Avenue, Columbus, OH 43210-1367. We regret that we are unable to return manuscripts. Those manuscripts accepted for publication will require a computer file on disk (word processing file on a 3Vl" MSDOS IBM-compatible disk, preferably in Microsoft Word 6.0). Style Each manuscript or letter to the editor must be on one-sided pages and double-spaced throughout, including quoted material. Endnotes should be used and appear double-spaced on pages foUowing the text. The author's name and address should appear on a separate page in order to facilitate anonymous review. While authors' preferences will be considered, it is the editors' policy to refer to women by thefr last names and to use "African Americans" to designate U.S. citizens of African descent (hyphenate "African-American" when used as an adjective). Gender-specific terms should not be used to refer to mixed groups (e.g., using "mankind" to refer to aU people) or to personify such groups as male (e.g., "the historian's perception of his role..."). Authors should follow the University of Chicago Manual of Style.
