    Abstract

    Scholarly conversations about business, gender, feminism, and history remain limited. In this afterword to the journal’s special issue on how these themes intertwine, six experienced colleagues reflect on their work and working lives to shed light on why this is so: Jennifer Aston, Hannah Barker, Gabrielle Durepos, Shennette Garrett-Scott, Peter James Hudson, and Angel Kwolek-Folland. They each emphasise the importance of taking nothing for granted, empirically, methodologically, or theoretically, in their efforts to bring business history into dialogue with gender and race and feminism. In particular, the group recommends looking beyond ‘big business history’, recognising that business happens at home as well as outside it, and remembering always that all of us carry and embody gender.
