Ax Wound is a zine named after the derogatory term for a menstruating vagina.

The creator of the zine, Hannah D. Forman writes, "it is my hope that "Ax Wound" will create a dialogue about gender in the horror/slasher/gore genre -- a genre typically thought to reinforce patriarchal values. I want both the zine and the website to provide a safe, stimulating environment for feminists who struggle with their enjoyment of these films, and a place to explore what these films are about, and why we love them so much."

Ax Wound has recently joined forces with the website devoted to women in horror, by women in horror, "Pretty Scary".

Ax Wound creator, Hannah was also recently featured in a Newsweek article about feminism & horror.
