Originally published under the name The Manitoba Women’s Newspaper in Winnipeg, Manitoba, starting in 1979, Herizons published its first magazine edition in 1983 and by 1985 it had grown to become national in scope and readership. The magazine went into hiatus from March 1987 to March 1992, at which time it was resurrected by two former staff people (Patricia Rawson the Penni Mitchell) who were joined by a group of feminist volunteers in publishing the magazine. Herizons, which is published quarterly, marked its 25th anniversary in 2017.
