Wives Tales is a DIY women's health zine compiled by Britton Neubacher.

Published in 1996, Wives Tales aims to empower women with the knowledge to understand their bodies and heal themselves. Britton, a worker at a feminist health clinic in San Diego, examines the patriarchal roots of Western medicine, writing that the "less we know about ourselves, the more we can be manipulated." Many topics are covered, including self-cervical exams, lunaception, PMS, cramps, vaginal infections, STDs, natural birth control, abortion, menstrual extraction, childbirth, mammographies, and the importance of a healthy diet.
