Huntington Open Women’s Land

Preserved feminist lands

Huntington Open Women’s Land (HOWL) was founded in 1986 as “safe women’s rural land.” It grew as a project from the feminist newspaper CommonWomon and was originally run by a Grandmother Council and continues to be guided by a collective. Workshops, music events, consciousness-raising groups, rituals, and book discussions are only a few of the different events that have taken place there. Part of the larger back to the land and lesbian feminist movements of the 1970s, HOWL continues today on the original 50 acres near Camel’s Hump State Park.
