"as in you don't care if people use material from your zines, or as in you don't think it's a big deal to copy other people's zines and distro them? "

Zine Distro Etiquette, Copyright and Submissions

My name is Sonia and I run the Mimi Reproductive Health Zine Distro.(http://mimizinedistro.wordpress.com/) It's a feminist/DIY/queer distro focusing on diy health, feminist hystory, consent, assault prevention and personal narratives.  The Zine tradition that i come from is through punk in the 90's, and anti-globalization/anti-oppression/earth liberation activism in the 2000's.  I am wondering about the etiquette of distro-ing zines--most of…See More

I'm currently looking for titles to add to the library, and hope that folks will help me promote this rad body of zine literature into the world. I'm looking for zines about abortion, radical menstruation, consent, assault prevention and self-defense, queer history, gender, trans health and stories.

Hello out there!

My name is Sonia and I used to work with a group of womyn from Maine called the Mimi Collective. For about three years, we dedicated ourselves to learning and providing resources and workshops about

learn about our bodies, deconstruct oppression and grow in a safe space

will be an inspiration for my work for years…
