This essay enhances the broad context in which Karen Offen's argument is framed by addressing the question of how the humanities are faring today in relation to academic research and learning. I explore what that context means specifically for women's history and vice-versa into the future. Secondly, I provide a historical overview of how women's history in Romania has developed since 1989. My analysis highlights the slow and uneven shift from complete invisibility to some interest and a small number of excellent books in several areas of research, from demographic to political history of the modern period.
