Abstract and Keywords

The evolution and the various stages of women's history is the essence of this article. This article records women's history on a more personal way. Over the years, Frontiers: A Journal of Women Studies has published four special issues on women's oral history, which serve as chronological markers for the development of women's oral history. The author of this article built up her own methodology in order to record the oral history of women. The early days of carrying out women's oral history were exhilarating. The focus was laid upon women who formed the marginalized of society. Miners' wives, farmers' wives who remembered the Dust Bowl, even a single woman homesteader were interviewed and it was their experiences which were accounted for in recording women's history. A common pattern was to use excerpts from completed interviews to create public programs. A search for women's culture, words, feminism, and the problem of representation concludes this article.

Keywords: women's history, oral history, chronological markers, women's culture, feminism
