about black women/female ID’d people and the way we think/feel/interact with our hair.
Now I don’t have too much of a detailed plan for it yet, the idea just popped into my head yesterday.
would anyone be interested in submitting?? :D
Just got my hands on my copy of Grrrl Bodies Zine by Nicole!
I just relaxed today with some tea and engulfed myself in it, and I loved it. It even has spaces for you to write about your own experiences about body image.
It’s like a body positivity workbook, hell to the yeah!
Anyways, it rules and you should get it, also cause there’s a drawing by me in it teehee.
Support yr fellow feminists, it’s good for ya!
Me too me too!! I sent you a message but I guess tumblr ate it; it’s wonderful Nicole!!
I was really excited to see my submission in there—I thought I had sent it in too late! :)

Edited and put together by Mai’a, the Outlaw Midwives zines are a compilation of writings related to pregnancy, childbirth, abortion, and raising children, specifically as relevant to marginalized mothers, such as women of color, trans* mothers, and poor women, by midwives and other birth/reproductive justice advocates. The concept is as follows:
We envision anti-violence safer communities where mothers and children heal from reproductive violence, because it is when we are whole and confident in our own leadership, are we able to co-create healthy communities.
Communities in which loyalty to a mother’s choice is 99 percent of being a midwife and in which we define ‘motherhood’ as love by any means necessary.
Communities in which we care for ourselves developing spiritual and physical awareness so that we can hold the space, the energy, the vision for folks to make decisions that center freedom, community and revolutionary love.
We must mother ourselves. Hold ourselves the way that we hold our children. And know that our wisdom is stronger and more knowledgeable and relevant than outside expertise. We must live the lives that are given to us. And trust others to do the same. For the sake of our survival. For the sake of our ancestresses. For the sake of our communities. For the sake of love. (via the Outlaw Midwives website by Mai’a aka GuerrillaMamaMedicine/MaiaMedicine)
Outlaw Midwives zines are available to read online:
Outlaw Midwives Vol. 3 is in the production and due out probably in July 2011.
