Women Forgotten in History unveils the captivating narratives of extraordinary women whose stories have been marginalized and obscured throughout time. As we reflect on history, it becomes apparent that the majority of names we encounter are those of men. But does this imply that women have contributed little or led uneventful lives? Or is it rather an indication that their achievements and stories have been obscured and overshadowed throughout the ages?

Within the pages of this enlightening book, a tapestry of forgotten stories comes to life. From ancient Egyptian pharaohs to courageous teenagers who defied Nazi occupation, a diverse tapestry of women emerges from the shadows, these women reclaim their rightful place in history's narrative. Some forged inspiring paths as activists for noble causes, while others left a more morally complex legacy, their stories often veiled in mystery and legend.

Despite their contrasting backgrounds and experiences, these women share a common thread: their captivating stories and the tragic reality that their lives and accomplishments have been forgotten or deliberately obscured with the passage of time. However, within their tales lie profound inspiration waiting to be rediscovered. Women Forgotten in History invites readers to embrace the richness of these forgotten narratives, to honour these remarkable women, and to find in their stories a wellspring of empowerment and motivation.

Emily Rice grew up in the same village as the first witch to be executed in England, Agnes Waterhouse. After researching the local witch, Emily became fascinated in history, and her history teachers encouraged an interest in female historical figures. So, with the help of her research and analytical skills gained from her studying at the University of York, Emily spent the 2020 Lockdown writing her first book, Women Forgotten in History. This was to shed some light on the fascinating lives of lesser-known women in history.
