heterodoxy zine cover

A tiny zine from a few years ago. This is on the history of Heterodoxy, a long-running feminist group in New York City from the early 20th century. There are archival boxes with material from the group in various university libraries.

One thing I noticed while reading up on Heterodoxy was vile racism from some members’ propaganda plays and articles and speeches. This led to a further zine, Ida at the March.

But, this zine was originally inspired by a conspicuous and deliberate absence from Wikipedia: Marie Jenney Howe’s page was redirected to her husband’s page. I ended up writing this zine to express my un-Wikipediable feelings. The other result, which is much calmer, is this article: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marie_Jenney_Howe
