‘Ladies’ – Zine

‘Ladies’ is an illustrative zine highlighting the misconceptions of female identity, and altering the stereotypes of what it means to be a woman by playing with how they are portrayed in media. The focus is on women asserting their dominance over their identity by portraying the power, individuality and sexuality of women that is often kept hidden. By altering the way images of women are seen, ‘Ladies’ shows different sides of female identity that is seldom portrayed over the stereotypical ‘home-maker/mother’ role that has been repurposed and favoured for generations. Homage is paid to the revolutionary punk zines of the 70’s and 80’s that were often used by women as an avenue in which they could express themselves and their thoughts, all while campaigning for gender equality.
