Jodi Tilton, One of the Womyn the World Requires:
Collected Writings and Memories

Edited by Beth Puma, Craig Hughes & Kevin Van Meter

A Call for Materials

“Jodi Tilton, One of the Womyn the World Requires: Collected Writings and Memories” is a zine collection of materials written for, about and around the illustrious Jodi Tilton, who passed into the unknown in late July of 2007.

The title, “One the of Womyn the World Requires”, paraphrases a memorial given to Commandante Ramona of the Ejército Zapatista de Liberación Naciona, an indigenous rebel group in Southern Mexico – and we the editors feel strongly that such a sentiment applies to our partner, colleague, friend and constant companion.

The impact on us all of Jodi’s life, as well as her unfortunately and untimely passing, has been immeasurable. By collecting writings and memories together in this zine project, we hope to carry the memories of one of the womyn the world requires – a womyn we require – into our everyday lives.
