ABSTRACT:

The Womyn’s Awareness Center collection consists of copies of Heterodoxy, “a student-run, feminist women’s journal” published on the campus of Gustavus Adolphus College.  Heterodoxy’s early issues were monthly while gaps have occurred more recently.  Originally, the publication’s editors “attempt[ed] to coordinate the efforts of feminist students, faculty and staff members on campus.”  Since its inception in 1989, focus changed from providing commentary about women’s issues to being a publication vehicle for student poems, artwork, and personal essays.
