Indonesian history, women history, feminist practice, Nie Hiang Nio


This essay is an exploration of historical writings of women in the Indonesian context. Through a short fragment of Nie Hiang Nio, this essay discusses the challenges and opportunities of using careful speculation and literary techniques as a method of writing the history of unknown women. An exploration of this method helps historians to find a creative solution in dealing with the stories of ordinary women. Without falling into fiction, a literary style of women history can open more conversations about the past and can become one way of feminist practices in writing history, of which silences can be embraced through historical imagination and bravery to ask.
