From the website of Broadside

Broadside was a groundbreaking Canadian feminist newspaper that published for 10 years between 1979 and 1989, thanks to the mostly volunteer efforts of a group of political activists. Most of the collective members called themselves radical feminists – though, over the years, our identities shifted and grew –and Broadside’s content, for example in the area of violence against women, reflected that. But during the decade it flourished, Broadside also covered mainstream elections, pop culture, peacemaking, and other issues not necessarily connected to what was called radical feminism at the time.”

“The essence of Broadside was that it was a fundamentally Canadian publication that gave women a voice they weren’t getting anywhere else in Canadian mainstream media. The newspaper let women all across the country know that they were not alone, that things happening to them were happening to women everywhere and that our opinions mattered.”
