99 Zines By Women for the 99th International Women's Day

March 08, 2010 — by e. chris lynch

IWD march in iranToday is the 99th annual International Women's Day.  I figured what better way than to make a list of 99 of my favorite zines written or edited by women (that are still in print).  When I started, I thought it would be hard to come up with 99 of them.  I quickly had a list well over 100 and it was hard to edit it down.  This is far from an exhaustive list of great zines by women, but I hope you find it's a good place to start.  These zines are in no order other than in the order they came to mind.  What are some of your favorite zines by women?

Indeed, Giz. There are a lot of great zines by women that didn't make the list. It wasn't an intentional dis to brainscan. There were a number of zines that I didn't think of until after I published the list.

it's kind of taboo here but Brainscan is definitely a great zine by a woman.
