In support of YWLI

An instructor in the Young Women's Leadership Initiative program asked me to pull zines with these guidelines:

I think it's less important to show range--since they will be making pretty traditional format zines--and more important just to show strong examples with good layout and intelligent writing. The more "issue"-oriented the better, since I'm going to be focusing on the idea of making political zines as opposed to purely personal or diaristic ones.

I wasn't super-methodical about how I selected zines from the open stacks, but I thought people still might be interested in a bibliography of leadership/political zines. Here they are, alphabetical by title:

11 of the 26 zines were made by women of color. 11 deal with issues of queerness, including transgender identity and resources, and 4 were created by teenagers.
