Vancouver-based Collections: Kinesis

There are so many amazing local materials within Open Collections at UBC Library ( When local events and news happen, a text search for topics can reveal some interesting background or even just great stories to read.

With the provincial election last week in British Columbia, a search for electoral stories led us to this issue of Kinesis:

Cover of kinesis, June 1976

Kinesis was a Canadian national newspaper which focused on women and women’s issues. It was based in Vancouver and was published from 1974 to 2001. The Digitization Centre has digital copies available of this amazing newspaper, full of insights, opinions, and context for those of us who call Canada, and Vancouver, home. Also, there is some amazing artwork! A few of our favorites below:

May of 1984


June of 1995
