Abstract [en]

The aim of this bachelor’s thesis is to gain knowledge about thefeminist comic zine, and its meaning for its readers, writers and thelibrary. In order to explore this subject I use feminist theory, and aconcept from a theory which I call Literature as resistance.

The method used in this study is qualitative interviews andqualitative content analysis. I have interviewed six individuals,identified as feminists, who read and/or illustrate feminist comiczines. The interview material were transcribed and analyzed throughthemes identified in the material. Four major themes were found;Comics and gender, Feminist role models, Feminist practice and Artistic expression.

My results show that the informants in this study find the comic zinemedium to be an appropriate way of sharing experiences andspreading feminist ideas. The feminist comic zine is described as”the ultimate way of laughing together with your feminist sisters”,and it is perceived to make the world bigger and freer. To illustratefeminist comic zines is seen as a possible way to act, and influenceand change norms and structures. The feminist comic zine enablesthe informants to combine reading experiences with feministcommitment, creation and a desire to communicate something withtheir readers.
