Abstract:

"The history of Branching Out, Canada's first national magazine of second-wave feminism, is the surprising story of an upstart magazine published on the prairies that was read from coast to coast. It is an Edmonton-based story of political activism, feminist community-building, and survival in the cultural industries. When it ceased publication in 1980, Branching Out had reached more readers than any other Canadian second-wave feminist periodical. Feminist Acts is an eye-opening examination of feminist publishing, written to bring more Canadian voices into conversations about women's cultural production. A vital text of feminist recuperation, the book draws on first-hand accounts from women who were there. It is a must-read for anyone interested in feminist activism, gender studies, Canadian cultural history, or publishing history."--
