an.schläge (magazine)

Location

Austria

Though the content of women in mainstream journalism has found acceptance and is recognized as a real perspective, feminist positions are still marginalized. This is the important fact: the vast majority of departmental leaders are males and thus the most journalistically processed information reflects male experiences and perceptions.

The project of an.schläge is a comprehensive news magazine from a feminist perspective. We are concerned with making visible women's realities and experiences in a (male-dominated media) world, to the breaking of patriarchal structures and the making of a feminist counter-public. The principle of collective editorial staff here is just as important as the openness to diverse feminist perspectives and lifestyles of women.

Erinyen Zine

Location

Germany

Although anarchism is, in theory, inherently feminist, the reality is often quite different. Erinyen was created out of a need to bring issues of dominance, alienation, lack of control and masked hierarchy more into the anarchist sphere as well as for creating a place to share information, struggles and ideas. We hope with this platform and the magazine we contribute to more solidarity, understanding and change on all levels, regardless of gender, sex, age, ethnicity ... and so on.

Fallopian Falafel

Location

Jerusalem
Israel

"Fallopian Falafel – אשת חיל is a non-profit, Jerusalem-based feminist zine established in May, 2007. It deals with feminism in Israel, in all its forms of expression (third-wave, riot grrrl, religious movements, etc.), and it aims to spread awareness about the ongoing need for feminism to the Israeli public. It is worth noting that despite its secular leftist nature, the zine is neither anti-religious nor anti-Zionist." (Text from http://fallopianfalafel.blogspot.com/)
