The book was edited by Mohawk author and anthologist Beth Brant. It was first published in 1983 as a special issue of the lesbian literary magazine Sinister Wisdom. The collection was subsequently published in 1988 by New York's Firebrand Books, and republished in 1989 by Women's Press in Toronto, Ontario.
