"What started for me as a nostalgic review of a time and a movement, became a very personal, introspective journey to question where I stand as a feminist today. It made me think about and want to become better. A better feminist. A better person. A better ally. How can MY feminism be more intersectional? I am certainly no expert on intersectional feminism. I'm not here to tell anyone what to do or how their activism should be. I'm writing this zine because I want to share my own thoughts and actions. Maybe someone will find this zine helpful, maybe not. But it has helped me to start a conversation." author description
