We’re very proud to present the 10th issue of our zine, Wom*news: Cliterature!

In this issue, we celebrate and review acclaimed authors, and challenge Hermione Granger and Bella Swan to a duel for the title of ‘who’s better’! In addition to reviews and short stories, we’ve also got analyses of the ‘false rape victim’ trope in the courts and the financial reasons behind UQ’s discontinuation of Gender Studies.

You can find Wom*news #10: Cliterature today at the UQ Women’s Collective’s Market Day stall at Campbell Place on St Lucia campus, or online here!
