Online Directory of Women’s Media

— About the Directory —

     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.
     The first print edition of our annual Directory of Women’s Media came out January 1975. Our last print edition is the 2017 Directory of Women’s Media.  We launched this online version in 2001.
