ada, i could not agree more with your assessment that 90swomen are strategic–sometimes in smarter ways, sometimes not. i also want to introduce you to “judy!” the 1992 zine about judith butler. according to barnard’s online zine library (put together by very cool zine librarian jenna freedman):
“Judy is a Judith Butler fanzine from 1992. The existence of a Judith Butler fanzine alone is enough to crack up anyone involved in women’s studies and zines. Dr. Butler’s response to the zine, made by a college undergrad, is documented in the zine and in Lingua Franca. There are also quizzes, letters, photos and paper dolls.”
A-MA-ZING. there is nothing more to say.
