Doesn't Stop at Magazines

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. 

Fair Pay, Fair Play

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.
