Zine Distros

dedicated to the empowerment of xicanas

"There is a New Generation of Xicanas taking over Cyberspace --- Xicanas with an indescribable beauty, incredible courage, tremendous strength, unbreakable Pride, and the drive and passion to be Great Leaders! Somos Xicanas Chingonas- Somos Xica.Org.
I can't really put into words what this site is about... I don't want to make any false promises here. What I can say though, is that this site is my attempt at empowering Xicanas to use their voices and to make people aware of issues that confront us as Mujeres and as Xicanas. As you browse through this site you will find things that I hope are empowering to all Xicanas... poetry, Resources, Herstory, Role Models.. etc." (website inactive 14/02/2006)

Yo Mama Says

"Yo Mama Says The Parental is Political.
Yo Mama’s Maternal Feminist Agenda
So you’re tired of politicians who never listen, administrations that ignore public opinion? Well, if Yo Mama were president, she’d revolutionize government from top to bottom. What’s her platform? It isn’t her platform: it is YOUR platform:
1. Unity: don’t let anyone monkey-wrench your revolution. Beware of danger from without and within; stand with your sisters; take care of each other.
2. Money, Food, Shelter, Daycare, Healthcare: Basic Human Rights. All children everywhere should have food, a place to sleep, safety from violence, and access to medicine. No exceptions, no excuses.
3. Equality and Respect: Everywhere, all the time.
4. Education: Free, high-quality basic education for every child in every neighborhood. Music and art lessons for all, safe schools, well-paid teachers, and free public higher education.
5. Real Democracy: We have a good system with bad managers. Vote. Run for office. Go to school meetings. Stage a protest. If you talk to your neighbors you will find there are more people on the side of Democracy than Tyranny. Identify common goals, build coalitions, create community, exercise your rights. Speak out.
6. Demilitarization and Decriminalization: Prevention before aggression. Feed the poor, heal the sick, render aid, and in matters of sex and religion, mind your own business.
7. Human and Environmental Justice: Humans need clean air and water. Pay attention to the lessons of the past to avoid devastation in the present.
Wondering how she’ll accomplish all this? Then you’re being too damn practical. Yo Mama has something no other politician can lay claim to: a functioning brain and a magic wand. Read her hips: She’s from a place called Reality; she’ll end patriarchy as we know it, offer tax breaks to all radical fringe activists, and guarantee a tasty tofu stir-fry in every pot.
Yo Mama is here, there, and everywhere, tending her kids and fomenting her maternal feminist revolution.

This site is edited and produced by Kara Spencer. is published by Bee Lavender and is a Hip Mama project."

Yard Wide Yarns

"I am one of those “a lot of people” who are out of the loop of “traditional” parenting. Choosing a different life and parenting style, in the face of the mainstream pressures and expectations that dictate whether you are a “good” or “bad” mother, itself dictates a need for support and networking with others who have similar, progressive views.” Alternative views and methods of raising a child is what Jessica writes about in Issue#8.
