"Zadra" ("Splinter") is a feminist quarterly published in Cracow by eFKA since autumn 1999.

"Zadra" is a feminist magazine meant not only for feminists. The circle of its readers is far-reaching. It includes not only people involved in feminism, pursuing gender studies and those well-acquainted with the subject, but also those who refuse to think in stereotypes and are interested in feminism.

There are lot more such people than one would think, which could be testified by the consistently growing number of sold copies and subscriptions and also letters coming to the editor. In Empik stores "Zadra" is sold out within two months.

The circulation is 2500 copies and it systematically rises. Each edition has 68 A4 pages, with coloured covers and two-coloured inside. "Zadra" is available at Empik stores and Kolporter newsagents.
