The Day-Riverside Branch ended their “Year of Zines” with a contest! Artists were instructed to design a zine detailing their ideas on how to build a better future, (because we are plumb out of ideas).
Our winning teen Emily, a past Teen Squad Volunteer, made this fabulous zine about Menstrual Equity! We are so proud of and inspired by her work, which details the effects of Period Product waste, the steps to self-production and the consequences of period poverty.
Her zine discusses the danger of undereducation, when it comes to menstruation, and details the physical dangers of inadequate access to period products.
Emily’s better future definitely sounds brighter, and she has inspired us to investigate ways we, as a Library branch, can contribute to ending period poverty!
