The zine includes illustrations, photographs, collages, poems, typography and design - all on the theme of feminism and female empowerment.
The stickers are satirical and are intended to be used to cover female nipples so images can be seen on social media (poking fun at the unequal censorship policy of many social media platforms). The badges use statements aimed at women, ironically ‘Gold Digger’, ‘Check you out’, ‘You have an expiration date’.
