“I’d like to welcome you to the first issue of Pizza Face, a magazine designed as a space for you, youth of all gender identities, to learn, experiment, and come together in the process of shaping your identity in this big and sometimes scary world! Many years ago, a band called Bikini Kill said that “doing/reading/seeing/hearing cool things that validate and challenge us can help us gain strength and a sense of community.” They said these cool things help us figure out how to be happy in the world, and we agree! We hope Pizza Face can show you some cool things that will both encourage and challenge you (and that are also just plain fun)!”

“Welcome to 58008. Frustrated by a lack of attention to the outstanding work of women in technology, we have decided to do the work ourselves. Our mission is to explore, probe, and critique the gendered aspects of learning and living professions in technology, as well as to call attention to the women already involved in this field.”

“We at STEMinist see you as fully capable young womxn, integral to a necessary transformation of the STEM disciplines. As Sandra Harding notes, we, as feminists, ‘have not yet given adequate attention to envisioning truly emancipatory knowledge-seeking.’ In other words, the purpose of the STEMinist mag is to encourage you not only to seek knowledge that historically has not been available to you, but to take charge of the way knowledge, and science, is produced and applied. You have so much power in shaping yourselves and the world you want to live in, and we at STEMinist want you to never forget it!”

“We recognize that this work is far from easy, but disrupting the status quo is never simple, and as Sara Ahmed writes, ‘Where there is hope there is difficulty.’ Feminism is the work that we do against oppression to attempt to foster hope, collectivity, and understanding. Femininst theory is how we live our lives. We combine these two ideologies and create a form of rebellion. One that is quintessentially tied to sharing the experiences of those historically denied a voice by giving their work a place to be seen and shared. We will not attempt to appropriate their words to be more palatable by translating them into normative prose, but simply give the avenue and the means for these works to be regarded as legimate and true. As bell hooks writes, ‘I found a place of sanctuary in theorizing,’ and to create a place of sanctuary for expression and thought is absolutely Periphery’s objective.”

“At times activist work can be daunting but that is why we are here. This publication exists as a guide, a way for learning the theories and the on-the-ground tactics for acknowledging and resisting oppression and engaging in conscious and intentional activism and feminism. Whether it be by protesting with a sign or tweeting to people across the world, ultimately, it is this work that must continue and spread to effect change. As Sojourner Truth so aptly said, ‘I am for keeping things going while things are stirring; because if we wait till it is still, it will take a great while to get it going again’ (92). For some people, existence itself is resistance. For them, that is enough. But some of us can do even more and it is our responsibility to resist for them. Moving is resistance, even the subtlest raising of an arm. Reader, do not go still. Ask for help. Do not hesitate. Keep things stirring.”
