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.
If you like what we’re doing, please consider getting or giving a subscription (or two) to help us expand our storytelling in 2019 (see below). Easy entry, from $28 Basic to $52 Sustaining to $100 Supporting to $200 Philanthropist.

2019: Digital Expansion
This website is our “play” space as we experiment toward a Spring 2019 re-launch. Our loyal advertisers support the print magazine. For growth, we need your help. The next step is for Women’s Press to build extended digital storytelling around a few key issues each year, starting in 2019 with healing trauma, end-of-life options, and restorative justice. The underlying content theme: under-told stories.
To start, we need $45,000 to engage a women-led website development team. Then we hire an experienced ad specialist to secure online sponsorships, which enables us to hire a digital content editor and pay video bloggers. Every little bit helps!
