Canada’s foremost feminist magazine since 1992.
Herizons is a quarterly magazine dedicated to feminist social commentary. Herizons publishes on art, culture, and legal/political/community affairs. With a focus on anti-oppression, topics are related to gender, race, sexuality, ability, and other identity markers that intersect and shape our lived experiences. Each issue includes provocative interviews with artists, authors, and activists. It also includes timely, feminist-informed essays, news, and reviews. Herizons prioritizes writers based in Canada. It is published in Winnipeg (Treaty 1 Territory) and distributed across the country. Submissions are open year round.

Originally published under the name The Manitoba Women’s Newspaper in 1979, Herizons published its first magazine edition in 1983. The magazine had grown to become national in scope and readership by 1985. Herizons went into hiatus from 1987 to 1992, when it was resurrected by two former staff (Penni Mitchell and Patricia Rawson) who were joined by a group of feminist volunteers. 

Herizons marked its 30th anniversary in 2022.
