SMARTY PANTS #2: 5 ½” x 8 ½”, printed, 32 pgs.

Jul 21, 2011

This is the “Women’s Health Issue” of Smarty Pants. Cervical and other cancer, the importance of smiling, alternative menstrual pads, and other topics are covered. Instead of utilizing dry, facts-and-statistics reporting, this is undertaken with a more creative style from many different contributors. Testimony, how-to, and creative writing are all employed to educate, which is obviously one of the most valuable and practical functions a zine can serve. By the way, I am a punk, so when I hear people talk about the importance of smiling I’m like, “Ah! Hippie!” but this is still a good zine. –Dave Brainwreck ([email protected])
