Womyn's Braille Press (WBP) was a project run by blind women from 1980 to 1996. WBP's purpose was to produce feminist and lesbian literature on tape and in braille for women who are blind or print disabled. WBP published a newsletter for roughly 12 years, and served as a network for blind feminists in the U.S. and somewhat internationally as well.
