“We need to actively look for women’s stories, and put them back into the historical narrative.” — Bettany Hughes, historian, author and research fellow of King's College London
If you're reading this newsletter, you probably know that women’s voices, perspectives and stories have been diluted, overshadowed or underplayed in various forms throughout history.
No author of the United States Constitution was a woman (though Abigail Adams did urge her husband, John, to “remember the ladies”). In religious texts, women are often maligned or represented as meek or subservient. And academia and news media have long positioned men as the experts.
By some accounts, women occupy a mere 0.5 percent of about 3,500 years of recorded history. That’s 17.5 years. Women’s acknowledged history isn’t even old enough to vote!
As the author and historian Bettany Hughes put it: “We need to actively look for women’s stories, and put them back into the historical narrative.”
So, readers, as we enter the new year, I plan to do exactly that. Starting now, Gender Letter will become In Her Words, a twice-weekly newsletter in which I’ll break down news events, offer behind-the-scenes insights from Times journalists, share reader experiences and more.
Many of these stories will be framed through the words of women, because it’s those words that too often have been scarce or shouted down. Here, women rule the headlines.
Now, some quick logistics: If you get Gender Letter in your inbox already, no need to do anything. In Her Words will replace it and show up Tuesdays too.
If you’re reading this on the internet or someone forwarded it to you, you can sign up here. (And if you like it, please share it with a friend!)
As always, let me know what you think at firstname.lastname@example.org. If there’s a topic you think I need to know about or a great quote I should see, email me about that too.
Here’s to a year packed with great journalism and compelling stories, and to giving women’s voices the floor.
That’s the length of the human chain created on New Year’s Day by millions of women in southern India. They stood shoulder to shoulder along highways to protest sexism and oppression. “We will stand for equality for women! We will fight for secularism!” they chanted.

______From the archives: ‘Interested in music and flowers, as well as politics.’
This week in 1933, Minnie D. Craig became the first woman speaker of the North Dakota House of Representatives, making her the first woman to hold a speaker position anywhere in United States. (Fast forward exactly 86 years, Nancy Pelosi this week became the first lawmaker in more than half a century to hold the office of House speaker twice.)
In this 1933 article in The Times, the man who nominated Craig — who was referred to as a “small-town banker’s wife” — said he hoped her victory would encourage women all over the world to enter politics.
“Too often we think of women as cooks and helpmates,” he said, “but under the new order of things, women are beginning to play a larger part in the world of politics.”
