WHC uses RSS feeds to find content: it aggregates blogs dedicated to (or primarily focused on) women's and/or gender history as well as those that cover other topics but have significant women's history categories; in addition, it uses keyword filters to include a number of blogs that regularly contain relevant material but do not have a specific category with a discoverable RSS feed.

WHC is a work in progress - more blogs and new features coming soon!
