HERIZONS is a quarterly Canadian feminist magazine that delivers the inside scoop on the Canadian women's movement: health, activism, the environment and legal cases affecting women. Herizons serves up feminist satire and plenty of news at a glance. Canada’s largest feminist magazine is a unique hybrid of non-profit business, feminist publishing and advocacy journalism. Herizons is published in Winnipeg and distributed in every part of Canada. The magazine's talented, insightful contributors and its content span the country and the world. Officially, Herizons' statement of purpose is: to publish an inspiring feminist magazine that fosters a state of wellness that enriches women’s lives; expands the boundaries of feminism; builds awareness of current issues as they affect women, and broadens the influence of feminist principles. Herizons aims to reflect a philosophy that is diverse, and one that is relevant to women’s daily lives.
Originally started as a regional newspaper in 1979, HERIZONS has grown into a strong national magazine with a dedicated readership that spans the country and its regions. Herizons published its first magazine edition in 1983 and by 1985 was national in scope and content, drawing on writers from across the country. The magazine went into hiatus from 1987 to 1992 and began publishing again in the Spring of 1992. Herizons has published four times per year since then.
