The Pol­i­tics Is­sue of Suf­fragette City Zine

Broken Pencil - - Table Of Contents -

Get ex­cited for Suf­fragette City zine's sec­ond-ever is­sue com­ing this Novem­ber. The zine, which fo­cuses on am­pli­fy­ing the in­tel­lec­tual and cre­ative ideas of women, will be launch­ing its Pol­i­tics is­sue the week­end be­fore the U.S. gen­eral elec­tion.

Ob­vi­ously, there's a lot to talk about. But be­cause Suf­fragette is a yearly pub­li­ca­tion, pieces are much more per­sonal than just ex­plain­ing po­lit­i­cal views. Founder and edi­tor-in-chief Gwynn Gal­itzer says this is­sue will dis­cuss power strug­gles in re­la­tion­ships, re­li­gion and prayer, ter­ror­ism and deal­ing with tragedy, the roles of First Ladies through­out mod­ern Amer­i­can his­tory, the mur­der of Michael Brown in Ferguson, M.O., grow­ing up in Chile un­der the dic­ta­tor­ship of Au­gusto Pinochet, and of course how much they de­spise Don­ald Trump. “Haha, it's a lot,” says Gal­itzer, “but we have the best time work­ing on it… We are all about pro­mot­ing the in­tel­lec­tual and cre­ative ideas of strong women and en­cour­ag­ing oth­ers to let us know what they're work­ing on so we can help get the word out.” In fact, most of the writ­ers in the Pol­i­tics is­sue were found through an open call.
