This is one of the most quotable zines I've ever read. It's a 1995 political manifesto starring Hello Kitty. I'm tempted to ask Bianca if I can digitize the whole thing because it's that good (to my memory I have never asked anyone if I could digitize their zine).

Zines as Vehicles for Critical Pedagogy
College Book Arts Association Annual Meeting
art by & for change Felice Tebbe, artist, curator, & sales, Booklyn Artists Alliance.
Some artists and writers are moved to make things that change people, both personally and as a society. Understandably, these images are collected by public learning institutions. But, what do we do with them once they are collected? Participants will discuss issues such as the relationship
between socially engaged art work and public teaching collections, how the meaning of this artwork changes once it is held in a collection, and how these works are used by students, faculty, curators, and others.
Marlie, a Toronto teen, starts keeping a journal in August 1990 and keeps it up through October 1992. In that time she obsesses over the the Pretenders, learns to play guitar, discovers riot grrrl, starts a band, makes and loses friends, falls in love with a girl, falls in love with a boy, sees a lot of shows, and basically embraces and releases her inner fierceness.
Girls to the Front: the True Story of the Riot Grrrl Revolution
A history of the hey day of riot grrrl, Girls to the Front reads more like a biography of the movement, like a biography of an ex-lover on whom the author has some distance but still identifies with to a large extent. It is a loving, but not uncritical portrait of the rise of riot grrrl and its best known players. A professional (and very talented) writer, Sara Marcus includes herself only in the introduction and briefly in the epilogue. Given my own bias toward personal narratives and the every grrrl, I might have liked a little more about Sara's experiences and adventures, but I still found the book to be educational, inspiring, compelling, and enraging--in a good way.
