The legend goes that it all started from a dare. BettyAnnLloyd? ("Bethen"??) was interested in working with women to produce a feminist paper, BrendaBryan was interested in the myth making potential and graphic design and CarolMillett was interested in working with group process. There was heated discussion about starting a feminist newspaper and finally one of the women threw out a challenge; 'why not just go ahead and do it! First published in September, 1985 as a one year project, Pandora was to be a paper written by women, for women and about women. Now, 5 years later, Pandora still exists. 1

There are pictures of a large Pandora banner and a number of supporters in the International Women's Day 1990 photo album from AnitaMartinez, album "W # 8"
