'Women and the Dictionary of National Biography' shows that the Victorian DNB was largely a male domain - proprietor, editors, staff, contributors and subjects. The first volume had 505 biographies, only 35 of them women, by 87 contributors, four of whom were women. In the early twentieth century volumes there were still few women subjects and even a fall in women writers. DNB women subjects and writers are still in a minority - 12% and 8% respectively in the 1980 - 1985 supplement, but despite the fact that, overall, DNB women subjects are outnumbered by men almost 23 to 1, the revolution in women’s lives and in ways of thinking about women is recognised by the modern DNB. This study illustrates its importance as a resource about and by women. 'Women and the Dictionary of National Biography' is the latest stage in Gillian Fenwick’s ongoing study of the Dictionary. It begins with a general overview of the DNB, followed by detailed sections on women subjects, women contributors, male contributors who have written about women, and an occupation index of women subjects, with comprehensive listings and summary tables in each category.

The Oxford Dictionary of National Biography is a collection of 50,000 specially written biographies of men and women who have shaped all aspects of British history, from the explorer Pytheas of the fourth century BC to modern figures (such as Malcolm Bradbury) who died up to 31 December 2000. The stories of these lives - told in substantial, authoritative, and readable articles - have been published simultaneously in 60 print volumes and online. The DNB was published in its earliest form in 1885. For this new Oxford DNB all the original lives have now been rewritten or revised. A special project, completed in partnership with the National Portrait Gallery in London, has enabled the Oxford DNB to publish the largest ever selection of national portraiture. It is an essential work of reference which makes quite fascinating reading.
