Biographical history

Judith Quinlan is a graduate of the University of Alberta in Edmonton and was on the Student Council (1970) and was part of starting the first Edmonton Women's Centre and the Isis women's shelter while a student. After graduating, she moved to Vancouver and worked on the Pedestal Women's Newspaper. In 1972, she moved to Toronto and worked on The Other Woman newspaper, helped start the Toronto Women's Bookstore, was one of the founders of Cora the Women's Bookmobile, and the Toronto Women's Centre. Judith later wrote for Broadside and worked on the LOOT project. She started the All Girls Hit and Run Feminist Marching Band and joined the Wages for Housework group and started Wages Due Lesbians.

After stepping away from these groups, she wrote poetry and songs (including the Mama Quilla name song) and then moved to rural British Columbia, where she worked with the 100 Mile House Women's Centre, acted as the editor of The Open Door (Rural Lesbians of BC), and got involved in choirs and music teaching. She later moved back to Vancouver and then Victoria where she currently resides.
