Zines to present feminist critiques of marriage and wedding culture

Zines are important activist tools for starting discussions and creating social change, says Ayesha Mian Akram, a sessional instructor of women’s and gender studies in the School of Social Work.

Students in her third-year course “Love, Honour, and Obey: Marriage and Gender” will present the publications they have created this fall at a Zine Fair from 3:30 to 5 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 30, in the CAW Student Centre Commons.

“The students have been working all semester to prepare zines that critique one aspect of marriage or wedding culture through a feminist lens,” Mian Akram says. “This event is open to all and we welcome everyone to drop by, read the students’ work, and engage in discussion.”
