What will The Forgotten Women In Chess cover?

Right now, I’m focusing on the women in chess history. but I also want to use this series to be able to talk about other parts of chess culture — history of women’s titles, the role of women in chess as chess history evolved, probably other stuff, too, like important moments in chess history that women contributed to. The beauty of something really big like this is there’s lots of areas to cover.

So yeah! That’s gonna be my Forgotten Women In Chess series. Right now I have 4 women I plan to cover. I don’t have a definitive date for the first post on Maria Teresa Mora Iturralde, but I’m shooting for the end of July.
