When the first issue of Index appeared in the spring of 1972, it contained a long article by Jose Cardoso Pires concerning the history and meaning of 420 years of official censorship in Portugal. The same issue carried a declaration to the Portuguese nation signed by 134 Portuguese writers, editors, journalists, publishers, lawyers, professors, historians, film makers, actors, artists, an architect and an engineer - all persons who realised that the proposed Caetano press law was 'aimed rather at perpetuating censorship and repression than ensuring the freedom of the press.' In this issue, Index investigates the case of the 3 Marias in a Portuguese context and a Women's Lib context.
