SCHOOL GIRLS FROM MARS ZINE - SCHOOL GIRL CULTURE SUBMISSIONS NEEDED !!!11111

 

HEY GUYS. So basically I'm writing a zine, kind of like a publication about the school girl phenomena etc. I'm going to write about the history of women's education and the school girl as an icon of culture. To make this work I'm going to need SUBMISSIONS. 
so like if you guys have any anecdotes or comments or doodles or just anything about your experience in highschool that you think would be great for the zine I would love your input.

Submission Guidelines for issue #4 of my fanzine Muchacha

Theme: “Who Says Feminists Don’t Have A Sense Of Humor?”

The purpose of this issue is to combat the stereotype that feminists are always angry/unfunny/too serious/uptight. I’m looking for satirical/humorous thoughts, poetry, stories, essays, quotes, rants, analysis, art, collages, doodles, comics, or photography from a feminist perspective. Whether it’s half a page or 4 pages, e-mail me at Riotgrrrl56@yahoo.com to submit your work. The deadline is September 1st. Help me in reclaiming the fact that “funny feminist” is not an oxymoron.

Funny Feminists Unite! 

Love & Revolution,

Daisy

"Feminist humor raises consciousness. And the reason it's funny is because it stands something on its head. Goodness knows you've got to have a sense of humor if you do feminism full-time, I tell you." - Eleanor Smeal

Feminist perzine 'Here. In My Head #10: The University Years', is out now!

£1.20 UK / $2.00 International

It’s 40 pages, half-sized, with a thick paper cover tied together with a pretty ribbon!

Inside, I write about living away from home, academia, making friends, the Student’s Union, and graduation.  It’s mostly a collection of stories about my experiences, but there’s also some practical advice for students and would-be students, and lots of lists.

Hey Alice,

That's a pretty big question. Why don't you try looking at some of the zines that are already out there and see what people are talking about, how they're talking about it, and then maybe do a combination of working from there and also exploring any gaps you see. Also, do some research. Online. If your city/town has a local archive, that could have some interesting local feminist history. Check out your library and report back on things you find interesting. What makes you want to do the kind of zine you're talking about? Talk about that. DIY. Get your hands dirty.

The first issue of my zine The Woman Question is currently on sale at Bluestockings, OR I can mail you a copy! The zine is about applying feminist theory to history, the media, and beauty ideals. The issue talks about the flaws of TV shows Girls/ Sex and the City, beauty ideals within certain minority communities and how they intersect, how to cope with body image issues as a feminist, how intersectionality is the coolest thing ever, how Frida Kahlo is a feminist and womanist, and much much more! Email me at glika074@newschool.edu if you want to trade zines or want a free copy sent to you!

Oh hi there!

I'm just putting the finishing touches on my first ever zine! Seeing as it's my first, it's not exactly a fine work of art, but it is pretty text-heavy and I think a pretty good read. 

It's a compilation of diary entries of mine from a recent volunteer trip to Kenya. I critique the role of foreign aid and offer insights into how applicable - or not - feminism is in the developing world. Also I drink cow blood. 

I would love to trade zines. Anyone interested?
