The essay is a historiography of South African Women's history. It seeks to take stock of how women's history has been accounted for since South Africa's political dispensation in 1990. It surveys monographs, anthologies and both local and international journals to determine if women's history has won its rightful place within the Historical Discipline. The essay traces this development by focusing on the volumes edited by Cherryl Walker (1990) and Nomboniso Gasa (2007), to determine if there has been improvement in the narratives within women's history. An attempt is taken to show that feminist and gender politics have had a great influence on women's history.
