Editorial

Thinking about a new femzine issue, we came up with the idea of  “crossing_passing” and soon realized the different thoughts each of us had, thinking about these words – crossing_passing ages, spaces, identities, bodies, borders, states, status, minds, …  – all in a context of feminism in_about_around so called eastern europe. Now, after quite some time we managed to review, to work and to upload all the different thoughts inspired by the call: here they are – enjoy and be inspired!

we came to such a pretty pass – A comic on the relation of personal with state borders.
