Herizons is a Canadian feminist magazine published in Winnipeg, Manitoba and distributed to subscribers throughout Canada. Billed as "Canada's answer to Ms. magazine," it is also sold on newsstands.
Founded in 1979 as a volunteer feminist newspaper, The Manitoba Women's Newspaper, Herizons switched to a magazine format in 1983, under the directorship of managing editor Deborah Holmberg Schwartz. It then expanded into the national Canadian market in 1985. Herizons published monthly until 1987, then ceased publishing until 1992, when its doors were re-opened by two former staff. Source
