We Make Zines

a place for zinesters - writers and readers

I want to make a zine that deals with food and feminism. I find that even though I enjoy food and cooking it feels so anti-feminist to be the female in the kitchen - and to choose those traditional gender roles. I would love for others to explore these themes through essays, arts, poetry, ect.


Is there any interest in this?

Hi Sarah, I am very interested in this subject.  I've been thinking about it a lot lately, because in the last year I've started doing a lot of preserving.  While I hadn't spent much time weighing the feminist implications, I recently came across a postcard from Jane Addams Hull-House Museum that read, "we honor the feminists who established the field of home economics.  Their work tackled problems of hunger, disease, and social inequity, recognizing that domestic space is a site for social change."  It blew my mind!  I had never thought of home economics (or the domestic space) as a site for social change-- and yet it is (or it can be)!  This perspective opens up so many doors of exploration and possibility.  I would love to contribute to the food and feminism zine; do you have a deadline?

I'd totally be interested in helping! I've been thinking a lot lately about how strange it is for me, as someone who feel so feminism-concsious, to be so comfortable in the kitchen and around the house and garden. The way I see it, though, is that I'm strong and tough enough to DIY and be self-sufficient...its an idea I'd love to explore more...

I seriously love the quote that zoo-mouse-key press posted. It's perfect!

I'm glad that some others are interested in this topic. I would like for the entire zine to be collaberative - so that will take some time to gather all the contributions.

Can we say a deadline of 30 April? And see where we are then?
