Many of these women were also involved in setting up and running the Cardiff Women's Centre in Cathays. Contributions were welcomed from women across Cardiff and South Wales. The newsletter included opinion pieces as well as notices of events and opportunities of interest to women in Cardiff. The newsletter was available by subscription. As the Cardiff Women's Liberation Newsletter it was edited and published for some years by a woman called Maggie who lived in Adamsdown.
