Our sister publication that is dedicated to articles about our experiences battling beauty standards, and creating a space for marginalized groups to understand their beauty.
We donate every single dollar of print profits to Planned Parenthood.
Every issue, we can only do so much to include everything we want to say about the world, and can only fit so much into one issue, or even one magazine. So, we make zines with a purpose and on a whim.
Published on Equal Pay Day 2019, this zine is dedicated to powering up and educating womxn about their rights and the wage gap. Throughout the zine, it displays research and original illustrations about the wage gap in America, and the womxn who did (and are still) fighting for equal pay.
It takes a lot to make a magazine! Photographers, graphic designers, writers, and so, so much more. Even to pay for the website that you're on right now. Your donation will help us with expenses and production so we can keep on publishing.
