Folter Feminist Zines Alive

Check out Regiane Folter’s “Feminist Zines Are Still Alive and Well” from FBomb and the Women’s Media Center. In your small groups, please answer the following questions: 

  • Why does Folter provide a brief history of zines? How does this inform her argument? 
  • What role does the internet play in zines today? 
  • How is telling your own story (through zines) important to the feminist movement? 
  • Folter closes her essay with a quote from Jonathan Valley, editor of Broken Pencil Magazine:  “Do it, don’t overthink it. Put your first issue out and see how it makes you feel.” How does this make you feel about creating your own zine?
