Heresies: A Feminist Publication on Art and Politics ran independently from 1977 to 1993. Each issue focused on a different topic such as food, theater, or ecology. Between the covers you'll find photography, film stills, sculptures, paintings, poems, prose, memoirs, collage, and documentations of performance art. Contributors included Harmony Hammond, Ida Applebroog, May Stevens, Mary Beth Edelson, Sally Webster, and Amy Sillman.
Here is the homepage for the 2009 documentary on Heresies called "The Heretics", directed by Joan Braderman. The site includes an index to the articles.
