The Winter issue of Goblin Fruit is live!


I've been doing some research on mid-1970s U.S. feminism (for chapter 19 of the Jo book). I've made two happy discoveries: 1) I own a ridiculous amount of source material on this subject (most of which I'd collected in the '80s-early '90s but hadn't looked at in years) and 2) JSTOR has all of off our backs magazine in PDF form. I have thus been geeking out looking at the September-October 1975 issue, which includes such fascinating items as Ellen Willis accusing Gloria Steinem of being a CIA front, and the American Dental Association attempting to track down Patty Hearst via her dental records. I was ten years old in 1975, but sometimes it really seems like another planet altogether!

Those PDFs sound amazing. :-) Glad that you're getting cool details for the Jo book.

Ooh, fascinating stuff. I could do with something similar for mid 1970s UK stuff soon.

I suspect I may have to make a trip to the Women's Library in London at some point.
