Gnosis by Bri Zine, out of Cleveland, Ohio, USA: This zine is made by a young grrrl out of c-town who plays in a semichick (meaning there's one guy) punk band called So Ricki.

Girl-Mom
(US)
"GirlMom.com is designed and moderated BY and FOR young mothers. GirlMom.com is a politically progressive, left-aligned, pro-choice, feminist website. Girlmom.com intends to support young mothers, of all backgrounds, in their struggles for reproductive freedom and social support. We believe that all teenagers are sexual beings the ability to love, procreate and nurture. We believe that teenagers have the innate ability to parent well, but are socially conditioned to believe that they are irresponsible and reckless. We believe that such social conditioning often creates a self-fulfilling prophecy, in which teenage parents believe that they cannot parent well and move on to not parent well. We believe that in order to solve the "problems" associated with the "epidemic" of teen pregnancy, we must reassess and change our collective social attitudes towards teenage childbearing. We believe that in order for teen parents to succeed, they must be encouraged to do so and assured that they are capable. Degrading, vilifying, marginalizing, and rejecting teen mothers (as is customary in our society) is counterproductive and illogical. Teen mothers will succeed if allowed the opportunity. When a teenage girl finds herself pregnant it is one of the few times during her life course where she will not only be expected to fail, but socially encouraged to fail. We believe that encouragement and support beget success." (Allison Crews)

Geek Overthrow
(CA/US)
“I love zines, I love their shabbiness and charm, but it is really hard to spew out creative babble, good creative babble, every few months. I would write a piece and then rip it up because it felt half-assessed. Nothing is good enough when you have both high standards for yourself and a big ego.” Thea writes of poetry, stories, the changing look of paper dolls, and also included are several c.d reviews.

Giant Kielbasa “And then a number of older folx came into my life. Kool, funky, mischievous and full of adventure and spunk. That’s how I intend to hold it down. Fuck all lthose sexist skincare commercials where women declare that they want to “defy old age.'Bring it on, I say!' Giant Kielbasa, #4: The split issue about food and family. Both complex, challenging, and life sustaining.”
