Published in the early 1970s costing only 60¢ a copy, this hand illustrated and typed journal carried this mission:

"We see CountryWomen as a feminist country survival manual and a creative journal. It is for women living with women, with men, and alone, for women who live in the country already and for women who want to move out of the cities. We need to learn all that women can do in the country and learn to break out of oppressive roles and images. We need to reach out of our isolation from one another, to know that we aren’t alone, that we aren’t crazy, that there is a lot of love and strength and growing to share. CountryWomen can bring us together…"

Below are some of my favorites from Volume 1.- Volume 30. via Gravel & Gold's blog.

Here is the Women On The Land: Creating Conscious Community movie trailer.
