new zines

New zines at Doris Distro.

Get Fit for the Pit #1: A zine on Taking Back Our Health and Fitness
Excellent compilation zine by punks about getting physical activity in their lives – not preachy or creepy at all. It's so great to see how different people find different ways to get active - Roller Derby, Yoga, Rugby, Hooping, the Gym, Running, Hiking.

An Essay by David "Spoonboy" Combs on Sexism and Rape Culture in Punk
everyone should read this - even if you're not a punk

An Activist Approach to dealing with Domestic Violence
This zine came out awhile back, and really needs to be in circulation. It's got really great articles and powerful interviews with people who work against Domestic Violence, who have survived domestic violence, and people who have recognized their own violent behaviors and have worked to change themselves. Articles include: Challenging Assumptions about Domestic Violence, Why Should Men Care about Sexual Violence, Organizing for Our "No Use for Abuse" Weekend, and much more.
