Minnesota Women’s Press is the longest continuously published feminist news vehicle in the U.S. With 35 years as a print publication, 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. The small 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 Fall 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 transformative justice. The underlying content theme: stories that we get wrong, and how to tell them in different ways to “unstick” mindsets.
We have identified a women-led website development team. We need to raise funds for their work, hire someone experienced in securing sponsorships for online content, hire an additional editor, and pay video storytellers. Every little bit helps!

Need to hire non-profit executive director, community engagement coordinator, and podcast producer.
2021: Specialized Content Development
