Magazine: men will be interested in women's history

"It is very male dominated"
10 min

This spring or summer, a new magazine looking specifically at women in history will hit the stands, looking to reverse the way there's far more men than women in the history books.

Eva Bonde is the co-editor of Historiskan, a magazine all about women in history, and she hopes her audience will include men, too, not just women.

Previously Radio Sweden reported that only 13 per cent of people in the standard textbooks are women.
