Background
The Women’s Zine Collection contains zines that were featured in a 2007 exhibit at the Wignall Museum at Chaffey College in Rancho Cucamonga titled “Girly Show: Pin-Ups, Zines & the So-Called Third Wave” which sought to explore: "the discourse through an investigation of recent works that linger in a reconsideration of one of feminism’s most hotly debated issues, that of the sexualized and insistently empowered body, (a.k.a. the pin-up) and its potential role in gender empowerment and self-determination." The exhibit featured zines as an example of the ways in which women express ideas about feminism through alternative means. The subject matter of the zines reflects that of the exhibit and cover topics such as feminism, sexuality, gender, erotica, burlesque, food, religion, and personal experience.
