Labyrinth, was the 39 year old publication sponsored by WWU’s Womxn’s Center. It’s changed a lot. This publication has broadened its definition and scope of audience and content and came to showcase a great array of lives and experiences over the half century it’s lived.
Starting from a group of dedicated women in the 1976, Labyrinth got its start as a journal exclusively for the female-identified. It was later open to more than the female-identified experience and became a place of varied perspectives of marginalized identities, intersections, and experiences.
As an office we came to understand the changing needs of marginalized genders on our campus. We made the hard decision of no longer producing Labyrinth. Below you can find previous issues of the publication.
All editions of Labyrinth contain strong language, nudity, and graphic content. Content, subjects, and topics of issues vary by year.
