Womynspace (Organization : Houston, Tex.) | University of Houston Libraries

Name: Womynspace (Organization : Houston, Tex.)

Historical Note:

Womynspace, Inc was a non-profit organization designed by and for women. Founded in 1985, it was directed by a collective of five women: Anita Davidson, Lynda Jones, Margo Shelton, Glena Stephenson and Rebecca Tallman. The organization operated under four basic tenets regarding the purpose of its existence. First and foremost, it sought to provide a gathering and healing place for women only. It provided space for artists and relief to women who were exploited as consumers. Lastly, it strived to add dimension to the “womyn’s” community. The organization also worked to establish an alternative living space in a communal setting; a coffeehouse that would provide artistic and gathering space; a shop and gallery space where “womyn” wares would be displayed and sold; a meeting and workshop space; and a forum for disseminating information throughout the womyn’s community.
