Celebrate the 35th Anniversary of Minnesota Women’s Press!

Please join us as we commemorate 35 years of everything that has made the Minnesota Women’s Press what it is today, and share the bold vision of the longest, continuously run feminist publication in the country.

We want you to join us in amplifying and inspiring the leadership of powerful, everyday women for 2020 and beyond. The event includes special recognitions, entertainment, dinner, and inspiration, all to raise funds to continue our work.
