Help Save Bitch!

Feminist consumers of pop culture, aca/fans and fangrrrls,

Bitch Magazine, the 13 years strong, thoughtful, sassy, funny & ever-so-smart publication needs our help. The bottom line, is literally, the bottom line–they need money, and they need it fast. Andi Zeisler and Debbie Rasmussen explain:

I first saw Bitch on the shelves of City Lights Books in the Fall of 1997. It was the Masculinity issue and the cover read “Life. Lust. Standing up to pee.” I almost bought it, but didn’t – – and have kicked myself ever since.

I later started my Bitch library with the “Orange” issue in Fall of 1998, and have bought every issue since.

It would be a shame to lose the voices collected in Bitch. They may survive as a webzine, but I think that even as print fades (or, evolves) there is still real power in the experience of a magazine you can thumb through and put on your library shelves.
