womensreviewThe Women’s Review of Books, a publication of the Wellesley Centers for Women and Old City Publishing, is celebrating its 30th anniversary. The review contains commentary on books by and about women. It has been published at Wellesley College since its founding in 1983. Old City Publishing has partnered with Wellesley since 2006.

ahoffmanAmy Hoffman, editor in chief, of the review writes in the current issue, “When Women’s Review of Books was launched in 1983, it was a boom time for feminist publishing — of books, newspapers, magazines, and journals, as well as ‘zines, leaflets, manifestos, and graffiti. Little of that survives, but Women’s Review of Books is still hanging on.”

MaparyanLayli Maparyan, executive director of the Wellesley Centers for women, adds, the review “is a unique and valued part of our mission to ensure that feminist authors, activists, and women’s studies scholars have a dedicated forum in which to exchange ideas, research, and critical social commentary. Currently, we are exploring opportunities to expand our reach to make this important publication accessible to even more audiences across the globe.”
