Women On The Edge is a bi-monthly digital zine celebrating emotion from the mundane to the xtreme. Released here in themed weekly segments over the course of the month, our goal is to present work in the most subjective way possible – by embracing the subjectivity of any given artistic experience and countering the traditionally white/patriarchal idea that there is or ever was a universal/objective standard.
As part of this work, we were collaborating with Dana Kaplan Angle on a physical space element (along with this digital one) — aka a clothing swap fundraiser and viewing party, where we came together in community to swap clothes, and raise money for grassroots orgs led by black and brown people.
Moving forward – as part of each zine, we’ll be holding a weekly digital raffle to directly redistribute money to black and brown people with the goal of creating an ongoing direct wealth redistribution model. Follow @womenonthe_edge for regular updates.

We are funded through generosity and our own money and value equitable relationships, both financially and creatively, with all of our collaborators.
Starting August 1st i’ll be putting $650 a month into the cost of running this zine and each collaborator, starting with our July zine, will receive a $100 stipend.*
The $650 will be split up in the following ways:
$300 to start the redistribution pot; breaking down to $75/week for each raffle
$350 budget per zine – $300 for 3 collaborators; $50 for the cost of running the raffle (if there is no cost this money will go into the pot)
*we are also in the process of retroactively paying past collaborators this same stipend
