7 Feminst 'Zines You Need to Check out ...


Contrary to popular belief, you can be a feminist and a housewife at the same time. I never thought I'd be in the position I'm in now, but I've found that a role I used to see as forced and oppressive is much better than the 12-14 hour days I used to work as I tried to climb the corporate ladder. I'm a lot more interested in being here for my husband than I am in driving in Atlanta traffic. Most of my friends agree. However, sometimes we just want something different to read. Something that doesn't talk down to us. Sometimes we just want a different perspective. To that end, here are some of the better “feminist 'zines” I've come across. For those who prefer paper, some of them have print versions as well.

1. Ms


This is the magazine that started it all. Created by Gloria Steinem and other feminists in 1972, Ms. delivers the kind of hard-hitting news that was missing from women's magazines up until then. I especially love the “No Comment” section (msmagazine.com), that lets readers submit ads that are just too offensive to discuss. Read about it on the “about” section; I can't do it justice.
