HERESIES: A Feminist Publication on Art and Politics was a feminist journal that was produced from 1977 to 1993 by the New York-based Heresies Collective.


HERESIES was first published in January 1977.[1] It covered a wide range of subject matter within feminist scholarship, including feminist theory, art, politics, patterns of communication, lesbian art and artists, women's traditional arts and politics of aesthetics, women and violence, working women together, women from peripheral nations, women and music, sex, film, activism, racism, and coming of age.[2][3]

The journal was seen as not only a major contribution to the feminist art scene, but a major forum for feminist thinking that experimented with an editorial format that asked contributors to grapple with hierarchical and societal issues of difference. And it created a public discourse in feminist thought and expression. Initial members of the Heresies Collective included Joan Braderman, Mary Beth Edelson, Harmony Hammond, Elizabeth Hess, Arlene Ladden, Lucy R. Lippard, Marty Pottenger, Miriam Schapiro and May Stevens.[4][not in citation given] The last issue, 27, was published in 1993.[1]
