Well, I started my fanzine writing career in 1993 and there were a lot of
girls in the UK writing fanzines then. Mainly because of riot grrrl, but
also, a bit because of twee and C86 I think as well...

Certain scenes and moments were enabling for women and girls writing
fanzines, plus it was pre internet still then of course so it was zines and
letters really.
