'They also serve who only stand and wait'
The idea of there being a 'women's writing' during the First World War is often dismissed. The war, the story goes, was a masculine domain, and as women did not fight, it is also assumed that they were excluded from a war experience.
This bibliography challenges that view by listing and annotating hundreds of published books, articles, memoirs, diaries and letters written by women during the First World War. Included are:
* Virginia Woolf
* Katherine Mansfield
* G.B Stern
* Brenda Girvin
* known and unknown autobiographers and diarists
* writers of pro and anti-war propaganda
* journal and magazine articles
* literary, cultural and historical criticism
