New Women's Paper to Fill Gap in Bay Area Journalism

by Nancy Nielsen a reprint source not named
A new local newspaper rolled off the press this month to fill a gap in Bay Area journalism. It is a paper written by women for women.
The first issues of Plexus appeared at 60 locations around the East Bay on March 15. The 16 page issue included articles on abortion. the Women's History interview with KQED-TV journalist Carolyn Craven, a book and movie review and a calendar of local women's events, among many other articles.
Plexus. which means a living network - an interwoven arrangement of parts, is to be published twice monthly and cost 25 cents an issue.

Women's Central Information is one of the main ideas to list events for women.
Dasmann, Taber, and Purdy were names mentioned in this article too small to copy here. Perhaps look for the history of Plexus somewhere if you are interested. Archivist Wendy Bertrand summary.
