registries, concerts, festivals, resources (legal and funding, facilities, distributors, etc.)
The 5x8^" soft-cover volume is 84 pages long and includes 16 black-and-white photographs as well as an extensive bibliography.
Editor Cynthia Navaretta writes in her introduction, "The next stage for women
artists is communication. Slowly but inexorably an interdisciplinary network is building . . . One of the purposes of this Guide is to provide a vehicle for the extension of
that network. Another purpose ... is to reach individual women still working in isolation, to help them find a point of entry into a broad and expanding movement."
