makes the voices, stories, experiences, opinions, and personal
brands/lived forms of "feminisms" available to Women Studies students,
students, instructors, the public/community through a publication to be
called a "jourzine," a form that inhabits the spaces between the
"journal" and the "zine."  The jourzine will also appear in an on-line
