Scope and Contents

This collection of periodicals was originally part of the Sojourner Truth Library, a library of books, newsletters, and other printed resources acquired by subscription, purchase, or donation by the Women's Resource and Action Center on The University of Iowa campus. While the majority are newsletters published by feminist groups in the 1970s and 1980s, some were official publications of agencies concerned with social welfare and other issues. The publications are primarily but not exclusively from the Midwest.

This guide includes references to feminist periodicals that are in other collections in the Iowa Women's Archives, primarily the Jo Rabenold papers, the Iowa City Women's Press records, and the Women's Resource and Action Center records.
