Women's Music Newsletter
Seattle, 1987-1989


This was a regional, quarterly newsletter published out of Seattle by Toby Langen and Molly McGee,
and included "reviews of new record releases as well as profiles and interviews with performers
and others involved in the production of women's music and culture." I have eight issues in my
collection of the eight-page publication, and as copies did not contain a volume number I cannot
tell if any copies preceded the first one I have, if there are gaps in the series I do have, and I do
not know if others followed. My copies span from "Fall 1987" to "Winter 1989."
And it is curious
that two issues were dated "Winter 1987," and "Sept 1988" and "Fall 1988," would appear to overlap.
If you can provide more information about this publication, or even scans of additional isues,
please email me so I can share the information.

Every issue has been scanned, all 66 pages, and you can click each link or issue cover.
