The Women Who Walked Into History | History Today
Stoddart Hazlitt was not the only woman to develop a love for adventurous and challenging walking, though existing histories of pedestrianism might have us believe otherwise. Walking had been a constant feature of the lives of women – and men – of a certain class for centuries and there is a rich and long-standing literature celebrating the old ways used by drovers, fish-wives, creel-haulers, servants, tinkers, soldiers, gypsies and beggars throughout Britain. The sort of walking for which the likes of William Wordsworth, Edward Thomas and Robert Macfarlane have been celebrated – rapturously and creatively alone in nature – has, however, been considered almost exclusively a male activity, and most books about the history of walking mention only men. Since the 18th century, though, women have found walking to be as creative, inspiring and necessary to their lives as men have, even if the accounts of those experiences have been ignored or dismissed.
