Colorado State Collegian - Finding Her Story

Dr. Cindy Griffin, a professor in the department of speech communication and member of the Women's Studies executive board, routinely asks her classes to perform this exercise on the first day of class, and she has yet to see a class that is able to present a list of women's names.

Historically, Griffin said, 'Men have typically had the power to make laws and run our presses - it's in some ways an unintentional by-product.It's not necessarily a mean-spirited thing.'
Indeed, even today we often regard things such as war, government actions and scientific advances as the essential events in history and rarely consider the activities women were engaged in (and in many cases around the world, continue to engage in) as essential to the historical record. 'Women were engaged in more day-to-day running of affairs, which wasn't seen as important,' Griffin said.That these activities of women made what would be deemed 'significant' historical events and inventions possible in many cases is something that should seriously be considered, and indeed the ways in which women were active in such events (even if on the 'home front') is still vital historical information.
Another reason women are often left out of the historical record, suggests Griffin, is due to the fact women were routinely denied access to formal education up until recent times.
