Socialist Feminism: A Strategy for the Women's Movement

By Hyde Park Chapter, Chicago Women's Liberation Union

Heather Booth
Day Creamer
Susan Davis
Deb Dobbin
Robin Kaufman
Tobey Klass Chicago Women's Liberation Union, Hyde Park Chapter [1972].

We have written this paper to express and share with other women ideas for a new strategy for the women's movement. Currently there are two ideological poles, representing the prevailing tendencies within the movement. One is the direction toward new lifestyles within a women's culture, emphasizing personal liberation and growth, and the relationship of women to women. Given our real need to break loose from the old patterns socially, psychologically, and economically and given the necessity for new patterns in the post revolutionary society, we understand, support and enjoy this tendency. However, when it is the sole emphasis, we see it leading more toward a kind of formless insolation rather than to a condition in which we can fight for and win power over our own lives.
The other direction is one which emphasizes a structural analysis of our society and its economic base. It focuses on the ways in which productive relations oppress us. This analysis is also correct, but its strategy, taken alone, can easily become, or appear to be, insensitive to the total lives of women.
As socialist feminists, we share both the personal and the structural analysis. We see a combination of the two as essential if we are to become a lasting mass movement. We think that it is important to define ourselves as socialist feminists, and to start conscious organizing around this strategy. This must be done now because of the current state of our movement. We have reached a crucial point in our history.

The zine library of Jessica Williams

This is the zine library of Jessica Williams
I'm not a collector per se but I have a collection

All the items cataloged here were acquired by me over the last decade
Not just zines—but also small artist books, editions, comics, etc.

I have also included a few independently published magazines but on the
whole have omitted anything with a mass-audience (this is probably arbitrary)¨

quoted from

The L-A-S-E-R-M-A-G-A-Z-I-N is a selectio of drawings, photos and collages. It is published six time a year in the shape of a handmade zine by artist Beni Bischof (content production). It is published in very small edtions between 12 and 80 (numbered and signed).

Carlos Zéfiro

Carlos Zéfiro was the pseudonym of Alcides Aguiar Caminha, a Brazilian artist who drew underground erotic comics between the 1950's and 1970's. His small publications, or catecismos, were 24-32 pages long, crudely drawn and circulated clandestinely during that time. It was sold discreetly in newsstands and street markets, and slowly developed a cult following. They were the initiation manuals to many young man, before the age of explicit sex magazines and movies. It wasn't until one year before his death in 1992 that Carlos Zéfiro's identity was finally revealed in an interview to Brazilian Playboy magazine. He had hidden this secret identity even from his wife and family, who didn't suspect of his parallel life as an erotic cartoonist. It turned out that he was a public servant and feared legal action against his work, resulting in the loss of his government job. During the dictatorship era in Brazil an investigation began looking into the author of such pornographic work but the results came out inconclusive. Today, his work is very much prized as nostalgia and the original editions of the booklets he published are highly collectible and hard to find.

Japan zines: Never mind the bloggers Gianni Simone offers an insider's view of the underground DIY publishing scene

Confused? If so, that's probably because zinedom is a mostly underground world that exists below the radar of the mainstream media. Nowadays everybody is familiar with blogs, but relatively few people know that a long time before the Internet, there was a whole community of independent publishers who more or less did the same thing bloggers do today, but on paper. Continue reading.

Shocking Pink - English 80s Zine

Shocking Pink was a feminist zine put out by a collective of young women in London, which ran from the late 1980s to early 1990s, billed itself as a “radical magazine for young women”. Part magazine with serious political coverage, part school-club magazine (if your classmates were hot-headed, deliciously witty, rebel grrrls) this magazine pre-dated riot grrrl zines with its fusion of sass, cultural appropriation and sprawling biro-made doodles all over the margins and type face'. Continue reading.

Provo Movement

"In Provo#12 the magazine was described as:

“a monthly sheet for anarchists, provos, beatniks, pleiners, scissors-grinders, jailbirds, simple simon stylites, magicians, pacifists, potato-chip chaps, charlatans, philosophers, germ-carriers, grand masters of the queen’s horse, happeners, vegetarians, syndicalists, santy clauses, kindergarten teachers, agitators, pyromaniacs, assistant assistants, scratchers and syphilitics, secret police, and other riff-raff. Provo has something against capitalism, communism, fascism, bureaucracy, militarism, professionalism, dogmatism, and authoritarianism. Provo has to choose between desperate, resistance and submissive extinction. Provo calls for resistance wherever possible. Provo realises that it will lose in the end, but it cannot pass up the chance to make at least one more heartfelt attempt to provoke society. Provo regards anarchy as the inspirational source of resistance. Provo wants to revive anarchy and teach it to the young. Provo is an image.” "
