A beautiful collection of the first six (long out of print) issues of Mend My Dress - a zine that for years has been constantly impressive in its openness and strength.

“Mend My Dress offers a complex, nuanced, and skillfully constructed picture of multifarious girlhood vulnerability...[ continued ]

"Rad Families: A Celebration honors the messy, the painful, the playful, the beautiful, the myriad ways we create families. This is not an anthology of experts, or how-to articles on perfect parenting; it often doesn’t even try to provide answers.

Gathering parents and writers from diverse communities, it explores the process of getting pregnant from trans birth to adoption, grapples with issues of racism and police brutality, probes raising feminists and feminist parenting...[ continued ]
