Title: Girl zines : a forum for girls to build community and establish their own identities
Author: Boytz, Amy Diane
Abstract: The personal nature of girl zines, including the zines' diary style and articles about individual experience, lends itself to self-expression. This thesis examines three zines, Essence, Limousine, and Touched by an Anvil as a means of determining the reasons why girls write zines and what kinds of benefits they receive. Findings include the way these zines serve as a forum for expression of their authors' thoughts. Also, the zines serve as a way to build community among reader and writer, and the publications provide a place where authors can counteract the messages given in the mainstream media.
