Courage was founded in 1976 by a group of ten Berlin women from the Kreuzberg Women's Centre who wished to create an autonomous leftist-feminist newspaper.
Courage published articles about a number of taboo topics, and aimed to represent a diverse variety of opinions from within the feminist movement. Some of the issues addressed by Courage's writers included abortion, forced prostitution, women's sexuality, systematic exclusion of women in male-dominated fields, sexual violence, child abuse, women in the military, menstruation, and female genital mutilation.

The title Courage (French for "courage") refers to the main character of Grimmelshausen's novel Trutz Simplex or biography of the arch fraud and country troublemaker Courasche "as a symbol of the militant, independently acting woman.
