Although the newspaper, the only one of its kind in the Deep South, ceased publication in 1982, the company president and one of Distaff's founders, Mary Gehman, continued to operate Margaret Media, Inc. to conduct women's history tours of the French Quarter and eventually to publish the book Women and New Orleans in 1988. Her second book, The Free People of Color of New Orleans, was published in 1994, and the third, Louisiana's Great River Road: The Mississippi from Angola North to Venice South in 2003.

from New Orleans to Dallas was hijacked to Cuba on March 28,

Orleans, a male passenger stood up holding a whiskey bottle
with brown liquid and demanded to be flown to Cuba. He
threatened to pour the liquid on a flight attendant and ignite
it if his demand was not met. The pilot diverted the aircraft
to Cuba where the flight landed without further
incident. Cuban authorities boarded the aircraft in
Havana and took the hijacker into custody.
