A Case of Double Standards

Keith Thomas’s article about double standards in the sixteenth century unfortunately applies today to the historical profession itself. In my latest column for History TodayI examine how female historians are still treated unfairly both inside and outside the academy, and argue that things must change.

One thought on “A Case of Double Standards

  1. I’m appalled after reading your piece, at the behaviour of these people, especially the treatment of the Historian whose research was turned into a TV series, why do people behave like this ? To my mind gender should not come into it when appraising anyone’s work or anything else for that matter.
