Purple Myrtle Squeegy - A PMS Perzine is a perzine written by Hadass S. Ben-Ari, based in Jerusalem, Israel.

It started in 2010 as a nonsense zine including art and articles that made sense solely to the writer. It later evolved into a diary-style perzine including stories and rants about holidays, travels, music, playing guitar, being a punk and a metalhead grrrl, activism, art, DIY events and projects, feminism and riot grrrl. It sometimes also includes collages and original drawings by the author, and a regular segment of the comics Twigz.

The author explains the name of the zine as follows: - Purple is her favorite color. - Myrtle is her name (Hadass in Hebrew) - Squeegy is what she is (not to be confused with Squeegee)

The issues are all hand-made - written by hand or on a manual typewriter, laid out with scissors, glue, paper, construction paper, flyers and magazines, and pen or pencil drawings.

The zine is available for trade. Contact Hadass by email: fallopian.falafel@gmail.com

It is also available for sale on Etsy: [1]
