Meant to be a "style of writing/style of zine" entry, like personal zine, not just a zine title or anything like that. -Sarah, 10/11/06, 12:01pm (EST)

Is there someone with a depth of knowledge in Riot Grrrl related zines we could ask to do pages for some of these zines? It's sad to have so many red links to pages that don't exist and this was a pretty popular genre of zines in the mid-'90s. dan10things 11:56, 16 October 2006 (EDT)
I could write for most of them, since I've done research on the subject recently (which is where most of the lists came from) and have excerpts for most of these zines at home, but it's an issue of both time and computer/internet access. I can only add to this site while I'm at work usually. I might be able to write short entries while I'm at home and cut and paste them while at work. But I've already warned Alan that my contributions would be sporadic since I tend to only have time for this site when things at work are slow. - Sarah, 16 October 2006, 12:19pm
Oh free time, yes, that :) Cool Sarah. I do have a few old really early riot grrrl zines I'm gonna try to dig up, but I donated most a long time ago. I really need to go through my zine collection at home and scan covers and enter more stuff, but yeah, when will I have the time? dan10things 14:41, 16 October 2006 (EDT)
I'm going to slightly re-edit this so that I can include a brief history from the zine Bikini Kill #2, which may be important to have in a public forum since so much misinformation about Riot Grrrl gets repeated over and over (like on Wikipedia). I'm going to edit out Tobi's claims for inventing the term "Riot Grrrl"; I don't doubt she made this claim but as the writer of this article seems to sense as well, there is a sense of disingenious, wilfull disinformation, no doubt with reason, to Tobi's statement. Feel free to let me know what you think. InvisibleFriend 21:33, 10 April 2007 (EDT)
I edited this page a little bit. --Grrrlriot 14:51, 21 January 2008 (EST)
