Period. The Zine.
Sarah Godfrey and I released Period. The Zine. at the East Bay Alternative Book and Zine Fest in December 2013.
Period. The Zine. has 26 pages with work from 10 contributors.
If you've always wondered how periods evolved, why we even have them - Val Aurora has summarized the research for you. Abby Young wrote an in depth critique of the various terrible monthly mail order menstrual package startups. There are poems, personal stories, and a review of a still-relevant 1946 Disney-Kotex advertising collaboration (complete with screenshots).
In "My Roommate Has An Iron Uterus," Maggie Delano, an MIT electrical engineering PhD candidate writes about applying her experimental skills to tracking her and her roommates periods to investigate if they synced up.
If you've been meaning to track your period, or try some Quantified Self period-related experiments, my special fold-up pocket mod "Hipster Period Tracking App" comes with the zine. It has suggested things to try, book recommendations, and a DIY legend.
