I'm afraid I can't help you any with this particular idea of the  
"Women of Ansteorra" articles, however perhaps your or the other  
chroniclers of this fine kingdom might want to consider perusing some  
of the files in the Florilegium for similar topics in the future.  
Many of the articles in the Florilegium were originally written for  
local newsletters and thus will be of the size you are looking for.  
Looking at the bottom of any Florilegium article (-art) files will  
likely give you a notice on any republication permissions already  
given.  Usually this is to make sure the original author gets credit,  
which I hope you are doing anyway, and sometimes to send the author a  
copy of the newsletter in which their work appears.

Here are some files, including articles, which might work for similar  
issues on Women's studies.

And if there are any editors out there who would like to be put on my  
list to get my monthly Florilegium article for publication a few  
weeks early so you can meet your various publication deadlines,  
please contact me.

I hope these files and ideas are of use.
