Welcome to The REVIVAL Zine
• Feminist Publication & Community •
• HQ at UC Davis • Led by College Students •
As an intersectional feminist organization, REVIVAL encourages women, as well as all underrepresented students, to broaden their perspectives, share their thoughts, and use their voices. Not only do we empower feminists to share inclusive opinions regarding current events or social, political, cultural, and activist issues, but we also strive to give everyone the opportunity and community to express themselves while discussing their unique experiences.

When it comes to the body positivity movement, we need to stop comparing skinny shaming to fat shaming. While both are harmful, they never have and never will be on the same level.
I was desperate for some relief, but upset at the prospect of getting Botox. And it wasn’t because I was scared of having 20 needles stuck into my head, face, and neck, although I wasn’t thrilled about that either. My real issue was the stigma I had attached to Botox.
