This article intends to summarize the state of the art reached so far on the studies on publications for female readership. Our main interest is to take into consideration some characteristics of the first steps of a publishing project, either individual or collective, trying to expose the ideological agreements needed to define a public position and the search of issues and personnel to work in the magazine. We seek to reflect the utopia represented by a group of women who dared to organize magazines and show their point of view, from the early years of the XXth century to the citizenship extension period. These magazines were published in La Plata and Buenos Aires and they share in common that they were directed by women. The magazines are: Nosotras (1902) and La Nueva Mujer (1910), published in La Plata, and Unión y Labor (1909), Nuestra Causa (1919), Vida Femenina (1934) and Ciudadanas (1956), published in Buenos Aires. Every one of them was conceived in the Socialist Party or related to freethinkers organizations. These female groups public interventions were usually inspired by the seek of political and social equality with men. General aspects of each publication are described here, but simultaneously, these allow to open a wider horizon of investigation that deals with the search of gender identity.
