womanifesto

THE WOMANIFESTO FOR THE CATEGORICAL NEW FREEDOM LADY
An illustrated excerpt from Inga Muscio's brilliant book Cunt: A Declaration of Independence
Self published/handmade

In 2001, I read Inga Muscio's ultra-feminist masterpiece (see title above) and was utterly blown away. I worked up the nerve and contacted the author, asking permission to make this excerpt into zine. She said yes, and fourteen years later, I still send Inga copies each time I do a reprint. It's a great ode to loving one's womanly self in a harsh world.

Peek inside.

B&W interior, color card-stock cover

new girl law

NEW GIRL LAW
Drafting a Future for Cambodia

Published by Microcosm Publishing

Written by Anne Elizabeth Moore, cover illustration by MariNaomi

From the Microcosm website:
"When Moore, a writer and independent publisher, brought her experience in the American cultural underground to Cambodia on the cusp of the global economic meltdown, she intended to share a skill that would allow young people the opportunity to archive their own stories. Instead, the second generation of Khmer Rouge survivors she worked with ended up rewriting history.

The Cambodian Chbap Srei is a 17th-century book that intended to establish a code of conduct for young women. Staunchly traditional, but repressive and frustrating, the first large group of young women in Cambodia decide to rewrite it with Moore. The year-long process culminates in a grand discussion of human rights and gender equity, and a hand-bound book for all participants. Tragically, the completed book was banned and censored in both Cambodia and the U.S. But what these bold young women learn next about when they are allowed to speak, and to whom, are chilling.


Specs: 7'' x 5.5''
