Gamble Feminist Zine Culture Evolved

Let’s checkout Ione Gamble’s article, “How Feminist Zine Culture Has Evolved,” for Vice. As you read the article, consider the following discussion questions: 

  • Gamble opens with a claim that zines are thriving while more mainstream magazines are dying. Why do you think this is happening? What do zines offer that large-scale popular magazines can’t? Why is that more appealing to you?
  • Gamble argues that, “Riot Grrrl zines essentially operated as blogs.” What do you make of this comparison? 
  • Do you agree that your generation is more obsessed with images? How does that potentially change zine culture?
  • Finally, what did you take away from this article that can apply to your group zine project?
