Biographical Note

The Journal of Women's History was the brainchild of Joan Hoff-Wilson and Christie Farnham Pope, who began discussing the idea in 1987, when both were teaching at Indiana University. The first issue was published in Spring 1989. The JWH office was located at Indiana University until 1996, when it moved to Ohio State University, and in 2004 the Journal relocated to the University of Illinois. In 2010 Jean Quataert and Leigh Anne Wheeler took over as editors at SUNY Binghamton, with Elisa Camiscioli as Book Review Editor and Benita Roth as Associate Editor. Eileen Boris is President of the Board of Trustees.
