The Manitoba Women’s Newspaper

Region:

The Manitoba Women’s Newspaper was the voice of the Manitoba feminist community from 1979 to 1981, then became  HERizons: The Manitoba Women’s Newspaper until January 1983.  In February 1983 Herizons was first published in magazine format.

The volunteer-run publication was put out by a group that included university students, journalists, graphic artists, historians, lawyers, and activists. The collective was a diverse group that included women of  Aboriginal heritage,  single mothers on social assistance, retired women, and women who were part of the lesbian community. The Manitoba Women’s Newspaper carried articles on issues including daycare, workers’ rights and discrimination, Canadian politics, women and the law, native women, midwifery and birth control, abortion, farming, racism, rape, wife abuse, lesbian mothers, pornography, and nuclear weapons.

About 500 copies of the newspaper, which carried ads for feminist events and services, profiles of Manitoba artists, and news briefs from other provinces, were distributed. The paper sold for 60 cents. One of the driving forces behind The Manitoba Women’s Newspaper, Debbie Holmberg-Schwartz, was a founder of Herizons magazine.
