Vail mostly wrote about the punk and feminist scenes of the Pacific Northwest, both of which Vail had a hand in helping along via the pages of Jigsaw where in early issues - she helped promote bands such as Mecca Normal and Nirvana and called for more women to be involved in the punk scene. Vail may very well have been the first to coin the term "[[Riot Grrrl]]" within the very pages of Jigsaw, although in Jigsaw #5 (published in 1993), after both the Pacific Northwest music scene, [[Riot Grrrl]], and her own band Bikini Kill became popular mainstream media fodder, she claimed she started the term as a joke not to be taken seriously. Her bandmate in Bikini Kill, [[Kathleen Hanna]], was a frequent contributor to Jigsaw, particularly in issues #3 and #4. Other contributors included [[Donna Dresch]] of [[Chainsaw]], [[Jen Smith]] of [[Red Rover]], and Molly Neuman of [[Girl Germs]].

Jigsaw #3

Jigsaw was a zine started in 1989 by Tobi Vail of Olympia, WA., U.S.A.

Vail mostly wrote about the punk and feminist scenes of the Pacific Northwest, both of which Vail had a hand in helping along via the pages of Jigsaw where in early issues - she helped promote bands such as Mecca Normal and Nirvana and called for more women to be involved in the punk scene. Vail was one of the women behind the creation of the Riot Grrrl movement of the early 1990's within the very pages of Jigsaw. Riot Grrrl has been said to have been one of the few social and musical movements to have originated as a direct result of the zine scene. Her bandmate in Bikini Kill, the band they started together was Kathleen Hanna, and she was a frequent contributor to Jigsaw, particularly in issues #3 and #4. Other contributors included Donna Dresch of Chainsaw, Jen Smith of Red Rover, and Molly Neuman of Girl Germs.

Vail seems to have recently restarted Jigsaw, although the most recent issue, Jigsaw #8, is only online at her website Bumpidee and is only in text form and is somewhat incomplete. Vail is also working on archiving all previous issues of Jigsaw online, including the unpublished Jigsaw #6.
