The bulk of the collection, including administrative and editorial records, was held by Margaret Phillips and donated to the Archives in spring 2016. Some copies of the Journal were held at the Northern Woman's Bookstore and donated after the closure of the bookstore; others were held by the Gender Issues Centre and donated also in 2016.
