Story: Women’s movement



Creating alternative media outlets to report on women’s concerns and interests was an important part of the women’s movement. Publications included Broadsheet; Bitches, Witches and Dykes; arts journal Spiral; and newsletters put out by women’s groups all over the country. Broadsheet, published from 1972 to 1997, was the main communication channel of the women’s movement, reporting on everything from abortion legislation to theatre, film and art. The cover story of this 1977 issue examined the situation of young women in high schools.
