Hoax zine has extended their call for submissions for issue number five, BUT THIS IS THE LAST CALL! I’m excited about this issue because it’s about a favorite topic of mine, feminist community.
the topic of #5 will be FEMINISM & COMMUNITY
potential ideas for material include, but are not limited to:
elitism (identity politics & border policing & hierarchies within communities)
cliques & exclusivities
success & personal stories
the environment (food politics & urban gardening & eco-feminism & women in farming/farm lands)
accessibility (language & locations (urban vs rural) & academia & pretention & childcare)
work/ production (economics & capitalism)
social movements (then vs now – legacy of the 60s)
assimilation vs liberation (when, if, and how to assimilate)
the self (self-care & where the self ends and community begins)
what makes a community (how does one feel included? & how do we include others & what it means to find a “home” (limits of family))
networking (action & teamwork & friendship)
“diversity” (do we need varieties of people in a community? & tolerance vs acceptance (cultural relativity))
space (physical/ emotional)
legislation (policy & community organizing)
love (hate & anger)
we also totally need lots of artwork (photos, collages, illustrations, drawings, paintings, comics, etc.)! particularly for background designs and things that compliment the written material.
