who launched the first edition of the directory in January, 1975.
Martha Leslie Allen, Editor
This is a directory
of media owned and operated primarily by, for and about women.
We do not include men's "women's magazines" (magazines
directed at women), even if they have a female staff. We do include
many academic periodicals which are published by institutions,
but only those where women determine content and make up the majority
of the staff. If a woman's media feels it fits our definition,
we usually include them.
In the 1970's and '80's, the Women's Institute for Freedom of the Press published 15 annual print editions of the Directory of Women's Media. The National Council for Research on Women, in New York, published two more editions in the early 1990's. Beginning again in 2001, WIFP began publishing the annual directory of periodicals, publishers, media organizations, and other media categories. After the 2013 edition, the Directory will be published in print form every few years. It is also available here on the WIFP website with no access charge. Since we are continually updating the Directory, please send us any new entries or changes so we can immediately include them. We want the Directory to be as accurate and as inclusive as possible, particularly when we produce our print version of this Directory of Women's Media each year.
