Custodial history

The collection was compiled by staff of SFU Archives and Records Management Department and digitized from issues of the newspaper that exist as parts of other fonds and collections [i.e. F-111, Women's Bookstore collection, F-126, Maggie Benston fonds, F-134, Press Gang Printers fonds, F-162, Frances Wasserlein fonds, F-165, Women's movement collection (Candace Parker collector) and F-166, Women's movement collection (Anne Roberts collector)].

Issues of The Pedestal were digitized by UBC Library Digital Initiatives in 2017 and the resulting digital files given to SFU Archives.

Scope and content

Collection consists of digital copies of a complete run of The Pedestal, a feminist periodical published by the Vancouver Women's Caucus and edited by the Pedestal collective. The periodical referred to itself as a women's liberation newspaper and later as a lesbian-feminist newspaper; it published non-fiction, personal stories, poetry, reviews, letters to the editor, news of the women's movement, informational resources, a dream page and a calendar of events. It was distributed to individual subscribers, women's groups and sold by members at demonstrations and political events, and was available at bookstores and other locations around Vancouver. The Pedestal engaged in debates with members and readers over homosexuality, socialism and relationships with men, and addressed political issues such as abortion, childcare, education, anti-imperialism and patriarchy.

Contributors include Liz Briemberg, Colette Connor, Deb Dubelko, Susan Dubrofsky, Pat Feindel, Barb Finlayson, Eileen Hausfather, Pat Hoffer, Nym Hughes, Beth Jankola, Sylvia Lindstrom, Judi Morton, Jean Rands, Anne Roberts, Diane Schrenk, Sharon Stevenson, Marcy Toms and Dodie Weppler.

Volume VI, Numbers 3 and 4 were published under the title Women Can.
