Minnesota Women’s Press is the longest continuously printed feminist publication in the U.S.

Our Mission

Amplify and inspire, with personal stories and action steps, the leadership of powerful, everyday women.

Our Vision

We are all parts of a greater whole. 
Our stronger future will be built from the collective energy of women who shift narratives to effect change.


The Twin Cities-based publication was founded by Mollie Hoben and Glenda Martin in 1984 to publish a biweekly newspaper dedicated to telling stories about Minnesota women, by women, for women. For more than 20 years, Norma Smith Olson and Kathy Magnuson were co-owners, transitioning in February 2009 to a monthly magazine format.

On December 14, 2017, the magazine was bought by Mikki Morrissette, who serves as the editor.

The Minnesota Women’s Directory is an affiliated annual publication that connects readers with women in business and women-centered organizations.

WomensPress.com and @MNWomensPress on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Instagram connects readers with the magazine’s stories, directory listings, advertising and news of interest to Minnesota women.

A weekly e-newsletter features links to thematic stories and advertising.
