About Us

Founder: Mona Sakr

Bluestocking is an online journal that investigates the intellectual and artistic achievements of women throughout history. The name of the journal originates from the 18th Century Blue Stockings Society of educated intellectual women.  Bluestocking acts as a base for critical and insightful research into the work of female thinkers, raising the profile of women as major actors in the history of ideas, both past and present.
