a long, scribbly comic about skateboarding: everything i wish i’d known when I started skating 2 years ago.
I had a great time tabling at the Philly Feminist Zine Fest this weekend!
You can purchase a hard copy of my new zine, Analytical Grrl Manifesto, here
OR you can just read it for free here
Special thanks to Perfectly Acceptable for the gorgeous printing job
The Analytical Grrl Manifesto is an all-text zine about institutionalized sexism in male-dominated fields. It’s partly a list of grievances, and partly a list of practical strategies that departments can use to support underrepresented people in fields that are overwhelmingly white and cis-male. It’s far from finished - most of it is drawn from my own limited personal experience - but it’s finally at a point where I can show it to people and ask for their opinions and perspectives.
I’ll be reading from the zine this Friday at Wooden Shoe books in Philadelphia. Details here!
I’ll also be tableing at the Philly Feminist Zine Fest this Saturday! V v exciting, you should stop by and pick up a free copy. More details!

"We became friends because we both had this one brilliant, melodramatic friend who was also a fucking asshole. It’s funny because he’s not really involved in either of our lives anymore. But he made us into better people because we had to live with this guy who was a complete enigma and total jerk. So we got better at dealing with people and learned more about ourselves and life too. It was like going into a religious temple and learning their ways."
