Summary:
The materials in this collection are taken from the Lesbian Herstory Archives, founded in 1974 to gather and preserve records of lesbians' lives, experiences, and concerns, for the benefit of future generations. This archive represents the largest and oldest collection of materials focused on lesbians and their communities. Herstory Archive: Feminist Newspapers is composed entirely of newspapers and periodicals by, for, and about women. The periodicals and newspapers in the collection span genres and topics such as news, advertising, literature and the arts, sports, opinion and editorial, business news, and human interest and biographical content. The collection includes publications from across the United States, from New Jersey-based bi-monthly New Directions for Women to Plexus, a women's newsletter from the Bay Area. News-oriented materials discuss current events of the time, with feature articles and guest columns. Other content includes poetry, songs, book reviews, and sports commentary. Many publications feature letters to the editor, and others examine business events and financial issues, particularly how they relate to feminism. Obituaries of notable women in their communities can be found here as well.
