off our backs (often referred to as oob) was an American radical feminist periodical that ran from 1970 to 2008.[1] It began publishing on February 27, 1970, with a twelve-page tabloid first issue. From 2002 the editors adapted it into a bimonthly journal.

off our backs was edited and published by a collective of women who practiced consensus decision-making. Marilyn Salzman Webb, Heidi Steffens, Marlene Wicks, Colette Reid, and Norma Lesser formed the original off our backs collective.[2] The staff later[when?] consisted of Carol Anne Douglas, Tacie Dejanikus, Amaya Roberson, Sherri Whatley, Laura Butterbaugh, Farar Elliott, Angie Manzano, Karla Mantilla, Jennie Ruby, Jenn Smith, Alice Henry, and Angie Young.[3]

off our backs was last published in 2008 due to financial trouble.[4] [5]

Archives of off our backs are housed at Hornbake Library, University of Maryland[6]
