“We were working at Ms. magazine in 1996 when a xeroxed pamphlet arrived at the office bearing the name Bitch. We opened the zine and found what we’d been fearing didn’t exist: feminist writing that was funny, engaged with pop culture, and yet intellectually rigorous. Eureka! BITCHfest is the greatest hits, and reading them is like hanging out with the smartest people you know.”—Jennifer Baumgardner and Amy Richards, co-authors of Manifesta
Adventure Divas’ columnist Inga la Gringa’s manifesto reclaims the most reviled, and thus powerful, pejorative used to describe a woman’s package. A combo of girly health manual, women’s cultural reference guide, self-defense primer and an intensely personal revelation, Cunt has spawned a cult following among women empowered by this cunt-lingual feminist tract.
