what are your mix tape staples?
girl gangs are here now. we respond collectively to harassment and assault. we keep each other safe. we don’t need protection from cops, dads, or boyfriends. we’re not interested in our stories being twisted to justify racism and state violence. we carry rocks in our pockets. we take direct action. we share our stories, our wisdom, and build power. we want you to write for our zine!
– personal stories
– self-defence tips (including de-escalation tactics)
– ideas for action
– stories about how other aspects of your identity affect your experiences — are you butch? of colour? femme? trans*? disabled? a sex worker? etc.
– whatever you want!
we are girl-centred. if you experience misogyny then we encourage you to enter, you don’t have to identify as a girl. if you have an idea but you’re not sure about details or if you want to chat or WHATEVER then email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
