Doris is a perzine created by Cindy Crabb. It covers topics such as gender roles, sexual abuse, anarchism, depression, and the author's personal musings. Reviews of Doris have described it as a "renowned personal zine", with "language that evokes the intimacy and immediacy of journal entries or letters between close friends" (Library Journal). "This cut and paste perzine is honest, intimate and raw. ... Cindy conveys her struggles, whether they be psychological (as a survivor of abuse) or physical (trying to camp in the freezing rain), in a fresh and unself-conscious way." (Zine World) Excerpts from Doris are included in The Riot Grrrl Collection, an anthology compiled by Lisa Darms, gathered from the archives of The Fales Library of New York University Riot Grrrl Archives, and published by The Feminist Press in 2013. Doris was featured in volumes five, seven, and nine of Zine Yearbook. It is included in the Sarah Wood Zine Collection at Duke University. -zinewiki.com
