Reassess your weapons

Reassess your weapons is a zine that came out of the Leeds’ Manifesta feminist and queer diy collective, expanding later to wider contributions to folks akin to their feminist ethos.

We hold issue 10 of the zine in our collection: Library Catalogue.

Black and white front and back 'Reassess your weapons' zine cover. Photograph of three women with heart shaped cut-outs instead of faces. Photograph of a man in suit on the back cover. Printed text.

You can read a PDF version of issue 10 and all other issues in Grassroots Feminism [accessed 27/4/2020].

The academic journal Women’s History Review published in 2013 the article “Reassess Your Weapons: the making of feminist memory in young women’s zines” by Red Chidgey, who takes the zine as a case-study for her research into feminist memory.
