|Adventures in Menstruating
|"We here at Microcosm have a lot reading material about being on the rag, but nothing quite like this zine by Chella Quint (Chart Your Cycle). Funny and heart wrenching stories are interwoven between hilarious analysis of menstruation product ads (which are sometimes funny and sometimes painful). It's really good to see humour injected into this subject, done in a smart and clever way. This issue is perhaps a little less light-hearted than the previous one, with several personal accounts of trauma/horror stories related to periods. A very fun read - pick this up in addition to serious period zines in our catalog." Quoted and available to order from Microcosm Publishing.

Menstruation || |
realized over the past few weeks that all of the resources I’ve come across
concerning radical menstruation (including the ones I have written) seem to neglect
two really important facts: 1. Not all women menstruate and 2. Not just women
menstruate.” The Southern Ontario Bathroom Action (S.O.B.A) crew put out
this resource sheet in March of 2002. Alternative Menstruation informs those of
us who do menstruate on feminine hygiene health safe methods. It provides various
resources that emphasize the importance of our health. It also gives way to a
rarely mentioned topic, trans-inclusion in menstruation.

Spending too much family time leaves me like a pot boiling over or something.

Issue #3 covers Caitlin’s life in terms of sex and enjoyment intertwined
with the gain and loss of friendships. Adding to her non-monogamous ventures in

women’s magazine cannot deny its feminist responsibility. We chose the name
“artsy” as a way of turning a negative into a positive. The use of
this tongue-in-cheek word stems from the misconception that women’s art
is “artsy and crafty.”
Finally a magazine that truly represents women artist, because we are not an extinct
group that unexplainably recently surfaced.
