"Zines are independent little magazines published by people like you and me and completely devoted to the DIY (Do-It-Yourself) ethics. They are very diverse, covering topics from music, art, politics, parenting, ethnicity, sexuality, class issues, religion, feminism and much more. In zines anybody can write about anything."
— About Grrrl Zine Network
"Why do people make zines? Usually because they want to express themselves in a personal, cheap and quick format. If you do a zine, you're the editor and you can do whatever you want. A lot of people that do zines have some theme or subject they want to deal with that they don't think is already being written about in regular magazines."
"Zines are such a great tool for people to express themselves without media intervention, even if the voices are 'quieter' than those of mainstream magazines because of their much smaller distribution. People get a chance to make the messages themselves instead of having messages fed to them about who and what they're supposed to be."
