Female Authors


Female Authors


Women go from being culture consumers to culture producers when they make a zine. The common topics of female produced zines are personal narratives, feminism, issues of sexual violence, and female health. Zines also provide women with a method of safe, inexpensive free speech that can be distributed in politically repressive climates, whether is simple, personal narratives or subversive political ideas.

This collection contains zines produced by female authors and those who gender identify as women.
