It is difficult to argue that sport history remains on the periphery of historical research. Rather, it might now be identified as occupying a positive niche position within the broader discipline of ‘history’ itself. In Britain this is largely thanks to the ongoing quality and breadth of publications, including the continued production of journals like this one, which has ensured the discipline's credibility. Yet, in spite of this achievement, it is not unreasonable to assert that dedicated study of women in sport history remains a peculiarly neglected area of academic research in Britain.
