ISSUE N.2 SPOTLIGHT JAPAN
The cover of our Japan spotlight features the women of Bluestocking (Seito), Japan’s first feminist literary journal. Bluestocking fostered connections between its readers, and we hope our zine will do the same. The stories in this section are not playful anecdotes—they are calls to action. We hope they inspire you to engage with the fight for global gender equality.
This issue of the CHIME Zine is an ode to all Black women — demonstrating that there is no one story that rises above, no family grief that is more important than another's, and no demand for justice that rings louder than the rest. This equal footing, and the solidarity that comes from it, is the glue that holds the #SayHerName community together. The story of the whole is the story we want to tell. Say. Her. Name.

ISSUE N.1 spotlight brazil
In Brazil, our unique and deeply rooted history is a point of great pride and of great pain.It is not by chance that our motto has been: “If it hurts my existence, there will be resistance”. In a society in which history represents power and is the subject of dispute, the rise of divergent groups is essential. We no longer accept being invisible. We possess our own histories and they are first-person narratives. There are many stories that deserve to be told, and we have gathered some of them here.

These Voices have been gathered together to call for change. This is a tool that can connect us, and is therefore something greater than ourselves. We hope that you will cherish, share and engage with it – together.
