Jesus Missed His Period
Jesus Missed His Period is a feminist zine from Long Island, New York, USA.
Jesus Missed His Period: A zine for those bearing two X chromosomes
Jesus Missed His Period is comprised of essays, poetry, and artwork by the girls of today who have a drive and passion to speak out and be heard. It is hoped by the editor that this zine can serve as a place for young women to come together for relief from the times we live in and a way for girls of all races, sexual preferences, age, scene, location, etc. to express some of their fear, anger, happiness and oppression, a safe place for young women to openly express their disappointments in our culture and help themselves and other girls in the same boat, a place to admit something is wrong and embrace some sort of solution. In editor Patricia Rodriguez's opinion, every girl who bares their soul, regardless of how in this zine, inspires each other and the zine is a way to relate to other girls and express an interest in telling their story to the reader, who will hopefully in some way reject Hollywood, self-hate, complaining, and embrace celebration. Jesus Missed His Period wants to celebrate the fact that these total Betties are becoming familiar with their environment, pain, and healing. The editor has put out three issues so far.
The contributers are usually young women between the ages of 15-21. There is no particular theme that the zine revolves around. The contributers come from different parts of the United States and the world. These young women write or create anything that comes to mind or what they consider important. They utilize this zine as a means of communication.

About the creator
Patricia Rodriguez (also known as Treesha) is an 18 year old college student who lives in Huntington which is located on Long Island, New York. She started the zine in her senior year of high school as a way of taking part in the feminist movement and in lives of the women in her community. Although she knows that this zine is a very small step in reviving the feminist movement, she feels that the smallest event can make the biggest different in anyone's life.
