Include an interview with Le Tigre, in which Kathleen Hanna shares a definition of feminism:as does Johanna Fateman:
"...I think of feminism as a radical movement that's bent on changing the nature of the whole world, like destroying capitalism, and hierarchies of all kinds like racism, homophobia, classism, like imperialism, like all 'isms,' and it's gotta be somethng that is on a philosophical and on an action level at the same time and those two things really have to meet up in a real way..." p. 12
"...I guess for me personally becoming a feminist and being a feminist is kind of about unlearning certain things that I've been socialized [to think]. And sorta living life as an adventure and just like breaking the rules for who I think I'm supposed to be and learning new stuff and just experimenting both like in my personal life and as an artist and just having experimentation be kind of the guiding principle of everything." p. 13

"I'm not a girl. Maybe my dress and my vulva are confusing you? Ask yourself why that confuses you. Ask yourself why using a different pronoun, why using more inclusive language, scares you. Ask yourself how your confusion and your assumptions and your fears might be harming those around you. I promise it's okay to ask and to not have the answers, but please, please try." p. 4

"Slums may well be breeding grounds of crime, but middle class suburbs are incubators of apathy and delirium."
btw, here I am participating in a reading from a forthcoming book Make Your Own History: Documenting Feminism and Queer Activism in the 21st Century, with series editor Emily Drabinski and book co-editor Kelly Wooten (she's the one actually reading in this picture).
Also, if zinesters are unhappy with an image or a quote I included here, I'll take it down. Just holler at me.
