Check Your Context Zine


What is privilege? How does it impact our day to day lives? How can you identify your own privilege? We hope this zine can help you answer some of these questions and open more discourse on the weight that privilege holds in our society. Enjoy!

Community Song


We chose to create a song to demonstrate our final projects because music is a modern day vehicle for collaboration and extending messages to communities. Our lyrics demonstrate the different themes throughout or essays, connecting through each other the clips of both Moraga and Hughes speaking on community and family history. Our song, like our compilation of essays are reflection of our idea of community and collaboration.

On our website, Lynn, Rebeca and I featured interviews from various people at a “Love and Equality Rally” in Washington Square Park. We asked questions that tied back to the overarching theme of our three essays of unified activism through the strength of one individual.

Following the feedback from the class, we added a wordle cloud on our interview page featuring the words most frequently said by the people we interviewed. We also moved around the tabs on the website so that the facebook community planning the event was next to the interviews page.

Feminizine: Men Suck


Our zine surrounded the feminist cause and included the important women that we wrote about in our essays. We wanted it all to be emphasizing that community is the most important way to advance the cause.

From the feedback, we decided to include a “teaser” to the next issue that is about modern day feminism. In this we included a short explanation of the contemporary focuses of feminism including a description of trans feminism.
