Minnesota Women’s Press is the longest continuously published feminist print new vehicle in the U.S. After 34 years as a print magazine, we are expanding our digital storytelling, in-person conversations, and solutions journalism. We are seeking partnerships with donors, grantors, investors, and sponsors, and are asking for your help.
Mikki Morrissette became the Owner/Editor of Women’s Press, starting with the January 2018 issue. Her team is executing an ambitious vision.
2018: New Look, New Voices
In our first year as a new team, we have focused on cover photography and magazine redesign; networking with community leaders to find intergenerational and intersectional voices; and launching a series of MWP Conversations for in-person community conversations. The underlying content theme: women’s natural leadership.
