ver the years I've tried to examine and present chess' many aspects. I've always felt that chess and it's surrounding culture far transcends the champions, great players, and classic games. Most of the lesser aspects, usually the more interesting parts, get trampled underfoot in the constant telling and retelling of the relatively few major aspects. In the realm of chess development women have played a very minor role. There are reasons for this, but whatever the reasons might be, they don't change the bottom line. However, women have played their own supporting roles. These roles have traditionally been, if not mostly ignored, at best pushed to the back pages. Maybe this is the correct way to handle minor things, but then again, the devil is often in the details. At any rate, knowing that women's contributions have largely gone unnoticed, I've spent considerable time over the years trying to entertain, interest and regale readers with tales of chess and the ladies or with articles from a feminine perspective. Writing blogs has certain drawbacks. The chief drawback is that there is no good way to index content. While some of the content comes up through a search, nothing is ever exposed for browsing or window shopping. I decided to make a summary page listing and linking everything I've wriiten and could find that deals with women and chess.
