Eleanor Wachtel. Foreword by Eleanor Wachtel, Canadian writer and broadcaster.

"What do Margaret Laurence, Margaret Atwood, and Linda Duncan have in common? Their support of Branching Out, a groundbreaking publication that contributed to feminism, publishing, and cultural politics in the heyday of the women’s movement in Canada."

Jane Arscott, Associate Professor, Athabasca University


"Jordan tells a story worth knowing about the origins, development, controversies, and challenges of publishing Branching Out."

Janice Fiamengo, Professor, University of Ottawa


“Branching Out focused on the women’s movement, literature, and the arts, maintaining its outsider status from the mainstream Canadian publications, including most women’s magazines. Along with other feminist media, the magazine played a very important role in the fight for equal rights and recognition of women’s accomplishments."

Barbara M. Freeman, Media Historian
