Editorial Reviews


“Piepmeier’s careful study of the zine movement in girl culture is a powerful and convincing articulation of the ways women’s and girl’s activism has developed, and the creative forms it has taken.”
-Leslie Heywood,editor of The Women’s Movement Today

"Piepmeier's work is an insightful and long-overdue engagement with the feminist work in zines, which played a pivotal role not only in Riot Grrrl but also in the development of the Third Wave in general."
-Virginia Corvid,Feminist Collections

“Before you could Tweet your every thought to the world, young women cut, pasted, Xeroxed, and traded their own handmade magazines through the mail. In fact, the gorgeously glossy mag you’re holding in your hands right now started off as a ’zine. Girl Zines analyzes the beginning of the movement and its ’revolution grrrl style’ roots, as well as the way ’zinesters used the medium to explore race, sexuality, and identity.”
-Bust Magazine

“It’s thrilling to see zines taken seriously in Piepmeier’s Girl Zines, which explores the world of handmade magazines created by women as a kind of social activism.”

“Overall, [Piepmeier’s] analysis about the political role that grrrl zines played is dead on. They were central to the evolution of my own feminist development in college in the early 1990s, speaking directly to my feelings of exclusion, disgust with pop culture, and surliness about the lingering sexism that second-wave feminism had failed to abolish.”
-The American Prospect

"Feminist identities are the central concern of Piepmeier's Girl Zines, the first full-length academic study of young women's zine production to take third-wave politics as a serious subject of inquiry."
-Red Chidgey,Signs

A must read for zine fans and fans of the early riot grrl scene. Some touching stuff as well as punk rock politics!
