Press Gang Publishers, a worker-owned feminist printing and publishing company, was established in 1970 as a printing collective of six women and men. In 1974 it was reorganized as a women-only feminist and anti-capitalist collective, and began to publish books mainly by Canadian women writers and artists. The focus was on fiction, non-fiction, poetry, art and children’s books that grappled with racism, sexism, classism, homophobia, censorship, women in conflict with the mental health and criminal justice systems, and other social issues. The print shop closed in 1993, and the publishing company carried on until 2002, by which time it had produced more than fifty titles.
