Origins of the zine:

Daughters of Violence is a bi-annual zine by women and non-binary folks of color edited by Abaki Beck and Michelle Kiang. It grew from our desire to create an anthology of the contemporary experiences of young women and non-binary folks of color. We first discussed with this idea last Thanksgiving over dim sum and discovered that we had been thinking about this separately. This zine continues the legacy of women of color feminists before us, including This Bridge Called My Back: Writings by Radical Women of Color edited by Cherríe Moraga and Gloria Anzaldua and Colonize This! Young Women of Color on Today’s Feminism edited by Daisy Hernandez and Bushra Rehman. With Daughters of Violence, we hope to contribute to this literary tradition and movement building with the voices of our generation. Who are today’s young people of color leading the way? How do we support and love each other? How do we continue to create communities and break down stigma and shame?
