Abstract This article is intended as an introduction to a special issue of this journal entitled 'The Girl in Australian History'. It suggests that there is a need for more historical work which focuses specifically on girls and girlhood in an Australian context and offers a number of reasons for this: (1) because relatively little of this work has been produced thus far; (2) because such work will enrich and challenge current perspectives on Australian history; and (3) because the interdisciplinary field of girl studies will benefit from more contributions by historians. Ultimately, the aim of this article is to encourage further conversations between Australian historians and other scholars interested in girlhood today. © 2010 International Australian Studies Association.
