hey y'all! the 3rd issue of my perzine, you've got a friend in pennsylvania, was recently finished and is ready for trading! it is a 1/4 size zine about zombies (story about a dream // discussion on the game humans vs zombies & how to make it more female-inclusive), girl hate (being a perpetrator of girl hate // seeing girl hate in a young woman // the fluctuation of a relationship with a particular girl // a note on girl hate in general & reminiscing about it in a local punk scene), body hair (10 reasons why i don’t shave // telling off a dude about making fun of a female with a mustache // essays on four major areas of my body that i’ve wrestled with shaving (armpits, legs, face, & pubes) // discussing the divide between feminists and the decision to shave or not // a short reflection on seeing a female-bodied person with body hair for the first time), and a name change (discussing the decision to legally change my last name (trigger warning)).

Hi everyone,
I have a whole load of copies of Fallopian Falafel (my fanzine) just lying around collecting dust, and I think it's a real shame.
I would love to trade them with whoever is interested or sell them to whoever would be willing to buy. I prefer trading because I love reading other people's zines, especially fellow grrrl zinesters.
Fallopian Falafel is based in Jerusalem but it targets all audiences around the world who are into the culture of fanzines/perzines, Riot Grrrl, feminism, female empowerment, DIY culture and more such deliciousness! You can find out more here: http://fallopianfalafel.blogspot.com.
The issues I have cover a wide range of topics from the feminist perspective:
- Religion
- Music
- Beauty/Body image
- Pop Culture
- Female Body
- Love
- Pregnancy/Abortion
- Virginity
- DIY
Readers have given the issues great reviews so far. All issues are chanting "read me!"
Please contact me at fallopian.falafel@gmail.com to find out more.
Thank you!
Hadass.

CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS : FIST FIGHT ZINE

fist fight is a zine about girls and every day fights, from physical confrontations at shows, to the fight for autonomy with medical professionals, or the fight against advertising to be body posi. it's about girl gangs, and strong/weird female friendships.

It's about feeling positive and strong. It's about being inspired by other women on days when we've been feeling overwhelmed or defeated.

we want your contributions! we're interested in your personal writing/essays/comics/art.

when you're submitting, think about: whether it fits the theme and feel of fist fight (if you think it does, you're probably right), whether you want to lay it out on the page or if you're happy for us to do that, and a title.

you should also send a short (like 50 words or less) blurby bio-y type thing. totally mention your own projects so people can find you.

if you want more info, want to check if what you you're making fits the theme, or need a postal address to send submissions (word or reasonable quality image files can be emailed) you can email rina.anxiety@gmail.com.

Comment by Sari of Hoax on March 15, 2010 at 4:48pm
hey y'all, i'm tossing around the idea of compiling a zine about girl fights and girl hate; whether is be stories about things you have done or things that have been done to you, related artwork, general musings on the topic, how infighting between girls can be stopped or how girls can come together and appreciate one another, i'd love for you to be a part of this project!

please e-mail me or leave me a comment if you are interested or have questions! deadline is APRIL 30, 2010!
