I have a proposition for you all!
I am a Women’s Studies student at McGill university in my last semester. I’m taking a course called “Feminist Periodical Culture” (think feminist zines and magazines) this semester and I need your help!
An option for our final project is to create our own zine so what I was thinking is to create a feminist tumblr zine.
I have loved the feminist tumblr community ever since I got tumblr and I think it would be interesting to go from digital to print media instead of the other way around. Submissions can be anything: text, drawings, original images, poetry, etc. Obviously everyone will be fully credited and I’ll send a copy of the zine to you for free in the mail. =)
I’m not sure yet when I will stop accepting submissions, but it will be far away from now because the project isn’t due until the end of the semester.
If you have any questions or submissions either message me on tumblr or e-mail them to firstname.lastname@example.org
Hello all my lovely followers!
I’m sorry that I haven’t updated in awhile. The end of last semester was sort of intense for me but I have some time now to put up new artwork so expect more soon! =)

I’m sorry I didn’t update yesterday. I’ve been quite busy with school work. I’ll get a couple of posts in by the end of today though. =)
Thank you so much for the love! Annnd, sure. I’ll look into putting some music up. =)
This is a good intro. to the topics that feminist artists deal with and what may necessarily make an artwork “feminist” or not. I would also add intersectionality between race and class along with the other stuff listed. It’s hard to find perfect definitions.
I recommend watching/listening to/reading the entire series. Mostly because I keep throwing around the term “gaze” without really spending much time deconstructing it. I’m sorry! EVERYTHING IS SO DENSED AND PACKED. I could go for pages trying to unpack all these terms. But basically this quote: women turn into objects because of the male gaze, and see themselves this way due to the internalization of this discourse.
