Details

Ms Print was established to provide inexpensive quality women's work, to print women's artistic work to run workshops to sharing experiences. It operated out of the Women's Studies Resource Centre from 1979 to 1983. It applied for a Department of Arts Grant but was unsuccessful and thus they sold feminist books to raise money. The minutes of the meetings shows they had a high turnover in the collective membership and the the relations with the Women's Studies Resource Centre were strained. They sold books at conferences, on International Women's Day and from the Women's Studies Resource Centre. Some of the women involed include, Kate Barrett, Jillinda Thompson, Pat Gallasch, Jill Whithead, Suzi Jones, Karen Elliott, Jan Egan and Jan Phadke.
