dc.description.abstractThis special edition of Sport in History is an output from the largest academic conference dedicated to the international history of women’s football held so far, at the National Football Museum on the 8 and 9 March, 2018, to mark International Women’s Day. Twenty speakers presented across a range of topics, and community artists worked with a range of contributors to make a new textile-based artwork, as part of the wider Hidden Histories of Women’s Football project, which concluded on 30 September 2018 with the inaugural reunion of women football players mentioned by Jean Williams in the final article of this collection. So one of the key themes of this collection as a whole is how the memory of football as both a sport and as a cultural industry is changing, in part thanks to the revised commitment of the museum and heritage sector to better celebrate the women’s game. From 1 March 2019 the National Football Museum has committed to improve its representation of women in football to 50% of the work. As the museum was founded in Preston in 1995 and moved to Manchester in 2012, with a mission to research, interpret and publicize the football history, most of which have been based on collector Harry Langton’s acquistions. The commitment in 2019 to diversify women’s football therefore is a major change in the Museum’s approach and evidence of how academics can work with public history bodies to produce rigorous, and readily accessible, work that reaches a wide and varied audience. This collection reflects that collaboration with work from key individuals in the Museum, Archives and Library sectors, as well as academics and independent researchers.en
