The Manitoba Women’s Newspaper was the voice of the Manitoba feminist community from 1980 to 1982. The volunteer-run publication was put out by a group that included university students, journalists, graphic artists, historians, lawyers and others. It was a diverse group that included women of Metis and native descent, bi-sexual women, single parents and others. 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.
