From Pen Fight, a feminist and queer shop and small press based in Manchester, UK.

Two zines by author Janet featuring hand drawn comics and personal accounts.

Barren: a zine about being childfree

On happily living a childfree life, with writing, collage, and comics. On why she doesn’t want children, the pressure women face to want and have children, what she really thinks when she hears “I’m pregnant!”, shit people say about a childless woman in her 30s, responses to common statements about childfree women, what happens when you get a vasectomy (as told by her partner), and mental health.

Brick: a zine about abortion

A re-telling of having an abortion at 21 after becoming accidentally pregnant. Approximately 1 in 3 people who are capable of becoming pregnant in the UK will have an abortion at some point in their lifetime, but despite this, talking about having one can still be all too taboo. Zines like Brick contribute towards getting us talking more about a procedure that can be many things: mundane, complicated, lifesaving, private, personal and often unwantedly political. The feelings and experiences around having an abortion are different for everyone, but the more we listen to the stories of people who’ve had them, the better.
