Janina Ramirez: Out of the Margins

During Janina Ramirez’s research, she kept coming up against the same problem: the names of women would be struck out of historical records, replaced with the word ‘Femina’ – a deliberate process placing women in the margins. Now Ramirez is taking history to task. Femina is her narrative history of the Middle Ages, highlighting impactful women and demonstrating how easily histories are manipulated, and whose story gets told. Ramirez tells all with Sheena McDonald today.
