In August 2014, Worldcon: LonCon3 will award the 1939 Retro Hugos for works published in 1938. Some items from 1938 are still in print and talked about today, such as CS Lewis' "Out of the Silent Planet". But many excellent works have fallen into obscurity... especially those created by women.
Retro Hugo Women is a discussion group for Retro Hugo-eligible works by women creators. Because how will we know what is worthy of nomination if we never read it in the first place?
