The listings editor Claudette Charbonneau was a professor of English and Women's Studies, an author, and founder with Lucy Winer of the theatre group New York Feminist Theatre in 1969. Charbonneau has addressed this copy of City Women to the Sidney Janis Gallery with a note above the postmark: "Please let us know when you will be showing work by women. Our deadline is the 15th of the previous month. / Claudette Charboneau". Caitlyn Colman-McGaw, in a blog posting dated April 7, 2016, the 45th anniversary of Stonewall, wrote:"For $0.50, women looking to meet other women could peruse City Women's regularly posted social events. The magazine constantly aimed to stay fresh and justified the ever-evolving format by claiming they 'felt boxed in by our boxes', a winky acknowledgment to their target audience. Some such events included gender-specific activities. Inspired by years of the homoerotic traditions of the bathhouse, events like women-only swimming..Women Only Volleyball and Dykes Opposed to Nuclear Technology among others--[were available downtown].
