Women’s Studies Bibliographies (more to come!)
Second Wave Periodicals
The following bibliography contains a list of titles and call numbers for “second wave” periodicals in Special Collections, many with radical, cultural, and lesbian feminist themes. Please note that we do not yet have full collections of all of these independent or underground publications, and for rare and esoteric titles you may find only one or two issues. Some titles may also be available in the general stacks. Please contact us with any questions regarding this list.
