On April 16, 2020, Minnesota Women’s Press begins its 36th year as a for-profit publication for women, by women, about women. This makes it unique in the country — we have remained in print longer than any other feminist publication at a monthly frequency.
COVID-19 changes that streak somewhat. Our May issue will be digital-only, until we know that our 500 distribution sites are re-opened, and our small business advertisers can support what we do.
Yet we continue to share the stories of Minnesota’s powerful, everyday women. In fact, we are stepping up our digital offerings to include special Quaranzines of original content.
If you have missed some of our past storytelling, here are the Top 15 most popular stories (as of 4/1/2020):
