A Girl's Guide to Taking Over the World: Writings from the Girl Zine Revolutionby Karen Green
Synopses & Reviews
In the last several years, more and more people, particularly women, have begun to produce their own magazines--xeroxing pictures, handwriting articles, or doing layout on computers at home. Freed from the constraints of investors and, in many cases, advertisers, these publications explore issues and opinions not often found in more mainstream outlets. This anthology includes articles, essays, interviews, artwork, and fiction by many of these innovative women. 125 illustrations.
In the last decade, there has been an explosion in the production of zines.
On the forefront of this cut-and-paste revolution have been those zines made specifically by and for young women. The words and images that have come to define many young women's lives have long been overlooked and under appreciated. A Girl's Guide to Taking Over the World exists because these voices have refused to be silenced.
