Hijab: : Empowerment or Oppression? – Vivienne Layne

“My intention in this zine is to show how teenage Muslim girls living in the U.S. feel about wearing hijab and all the controversy surrounding the veil.”

Yalla – Andalusia Andalusia

“A traveloge and political document with a radical perspective from a visit to Palestine and Israel with the goal of providing the daily realities of Palestinian citizens. There are a series of stencils by Erik Ruin to help explain the true impact of what is going on all over the region. News articles, chants, and information are reprinted as well offering some of the bleak documentation of all that has occured. ”
By ex-Pittsburgher Andalusia!

Fallopian Falafel #3 – Hadass S. Ben-Ari

Special issue about religion. “Fallopian Falafel – אשת חיל is a non-profit, Jerusalem-based feminist zine established in May, 2007. It deals with feminism in Israel, in all its forms of expression (third-wave, riot grrrl, religious movements, etc.), and it aims to spread awareness about the ongoing need for feminism to the Israeli public. It is worth noting that despite its secular leftist nature, the zine is neither anti-religious nor anti-Zionist.”

in your eyes hopelessness exists in every corner – Elsa Eckenrode

Poetry by awesome teen Elsa with illustration and moral support by friends Runa and Miranda.
