This is an introduction to a special issue of 'Feminist Media Histories' on soundwork, focusing not only on women as soundmakers and listeners, but also on the power dynamics that framed and continue to frame both women's impact on media and their presence in the historical record. Drawing on research on radio, film, television, and music, investigating both contemporary and historical practices, and written by scholars based in a variety of cultural locations, the issue highlights the ongoing relevance of sound-centered work for women's creative expression and cultural experience in a media environment still dominated by silent text and the moving image, as well as the special historiographical and methodological challenges that writing women's history presents.
