The Woman's Exponent
: The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints,

Genre:   Periodical
This important organ for women's issues in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries featured much literary content. Founded in 1872 by Louisa Lula Greene, The Woman's Exponent was said to have been the first "permanent" woman's magazine west of the Mississippi and second in the nation after the Boston Woman's Journal (see this article by Leonard Arrington). Greene's successor as editor was the famous Emmeline B. Wells, who edited the journal for more than 40 years. The Woman's Exponent was discontinued in 1914, but has been revived in the twentieth century as Exponent II, an independent periodical for Mormon women and women's issues. See the overview of the original periodical by Sherilyn Cox listed below.
