This article traces the history of feminist periodical publishing in this country between 1970 and 1988 and its role in the development of Australian women's history. It shows that a distinctly Australian feminist historiography developed within the pages of journals such as Refractory Girl, Hecate, and Australian Feminist Studies. While most studies of the evolution of Australian women's history since the 1970s signal the importance of such journals, there has to date been no major study of their history or their influence within Australian historiography.
