Grrrl Zines in the Library

Freedman, Jenna

Most of what I know about privilege comes from zines. Zine writers, especially those coming out of the riot grrrl movement, give a lot of consideration to discussions of race, class, gender preference, and many other types of privilege. They question, explore, lecture, and rant with a broad spectrum of opinions and a shared openness and authenticity, making them excellent primary source material.
