Outwrite Newspaper Collection

Outwrite newspaper was produced from 1982 - 1988 by a collective of women (The Feminist Newspaper Group), was dedicated to offering news by women, for women. Self-defined as an ‘internationlist feminist’ publication, the paper focused on ‘the development of feminism worldwide’ and an examination of women’s oppressions ‘in the context of imperialism, racism and class divisions.’ 

Outwrite reflected the concerns of the Women’s Movement at that time, and covers international issues and radical politics. Liberation struggles in El Salvador, South Africa and Palestine, as well as local campaigns including those of the Southall Black Sisters, Sari Squad and the King’s Cross Women’s Centre were regularly featured in Outwrite’s monthly reports. The transnational community Outwrite envisioned and embodied resonates powerfully with the social justice struggles of today. In its heyday Outwrite played a major role in circulating news across a global network.
