It’s not exactly a secret that teen film—and really, the entire film industry—has a major whitewashing problem. Think of the protagonist of any popular teen movie: are they white? Almost definitely. Some Tumblr users who are also major Harry Potter nerds decided to combat this representation issue by creating a Harry Potter fanzine, its characters entirely people of color. (After all, the characters’ races are rarely specified in the books.) You can buy it on Etsy, and the results are charming and totally awesome. Check out some of the images below. Read More
It’ll be easier than ever to pretend that Chloe Sevigny is your real life BFF with her new 'zine, “No Time For Love.” A collection of photos of the men in her life, “No Time For Love” features Polaroids and photo booth snapshots (and lots of stickers, to protect the boys’ anonymity, and because stickers are great). “We wanted it to be more like me in my real life, who I really am… we wanted it to be something more real,” Sevigny said of the book in an interview with Style.

For those of you who don’t know, Tumblr is a fantastically fun place full of food, feminism, fandoms, and kittens! However, one thing Tumblr isespecially great for is allowing young artists to self-promote; they can post, share, and sell their work, all while having fun blogging. Other Tumblr users can enjoy what they blog and support their online friends by purchasing their products, be they books, paintings, custom stickers, or whatever else these young creators can dream up - like zines.

  There are days when I feel like I have a good grasp on this whole adulthood situation and like I've put high school far behind me. But the moment I start to feel like a grown-ass lady, something comes up that uncovers all my repressed teen emotions: the pit of despair, mild identity crisis, and awkwardness that is being a young girl. Today, that something was Michael Lucid’s 1996 documentary, Dirty Girls.     Watching this 18-minute amateur documentary gave me chills. Read More
    There are many people out there who still have not recovered from the tremendous chaos that was brought to the East Coast by Hurricane Sandy.  To lend a hand, two of New York’s favorite zinesters—Kate Angell and Katie Wadkins—organized a benefit at the Bluestocking Bookstore and activist center.     During this event, there will be zinemakers reading from their work, and plenty of zines have been donated to raise funds for hurricane relief.

  One of the best places to review uncensored feminist resources is the Barnard Zine Library.  This library is a part of the Barnard College which is a school of Columbia University. This institution thinks, “that zines are important cultural artifacts and research materials, as well as being a pleasure to read.” "What is a zine?", some readers might ask.  The word “zine” stems from the word magazine or fanzine. A zine is a DIY publication. Read More
How apt that this blog-slash-zine is titled “Got a Girl Crush,” since we certainly have a crush on it. Got a Girl Crush began in 2009 as the brainchild of friends Meg and Andrea, who we got to talk to about the project. In 2011, the first print issue of Got a Girl Crush dropped, and it was chock full of photos, interviews, and inspiration from ladies “doing amazing things in [their] own backyards.” The idea of Got a Girl Crush is to showcase empowered women who do cool things on the daily.
