This question was first posed by Linda Nochlin in her landmark essay of 1971 (Art News Vol. 69, January 1971). Since that time feminist deconstruction has become relatively common in many disciplines, with the aim, in part, to "make visible the invisible." In this tradition Herstory similarily seeks to redress the omissions of the past, bringing to light women of accomplishment who would otherwise be ignored by the exclusionary practices of history.
