the non stop

Catalog Number: 
zine, the non stop
Date: 
1990s
Edition: 
Volume: 
Issue: 
Abstract: 
An in your face angst ridden zine with prose that uses the food service industry as a metaphor for the objectification of women, social conformity and rape culture.
Language: 
English
Notes: 
I argue this is 1990s era because of the way it looks but also because it does mention the riot girl movement very briefly as a popular fashion aesthetic.
