Bring Feministing to your school!

Lori, Jos, and student panelist at a speaking event.Do you love reading Feministing and want to bring that magic to your campus? Are there feminist issues in your community that you want to inspire action around? Are you and your friends the future of feminist blogging, but looking for ideas about how to get started? Want to nerd out with Feministing editors about organizing strategy and Mad Men?

All of that’s possible with our speaking tour, Feministing: Offline and Unfiltered. For four years, Feministing has been traveling to college campuses and community centers to meet with students, activists and professors to discuss important issues on campus, in the community, and in national and international politics. And we’re hitting the road again for year five! We have a great time with the events, and students tell us that they feel inspired and energized to kick patriarchy’s ass.

As we approach Feministing’s 10th anniversary in April, we’re asking ourselves questions about the state of feminism: how has the movement changed over the past decade, both online and off? Where’s it going next? What we can do to keep building power and winning feminist victories? We’re excited to engage in these conversations with you at our speaking events.

Want to bring all this awesome to your school? Then set up a Feministing event today!

Zerlina speakingThe keynote panel features Editors and Contributors from our award-winning team covering a range of hot topics followed by a lengthy Q&A. We also invite a student panelist from your campus to bring a local perspective. Additionally, we can conduct interactive workshops on blogging and online activism for student or community groups. Feministing sees spreading the word about the activist potential of blogging and educating people about the tools to make it happen as central to our mission.

We work with a number of different budgets to suit a variety of groups’ needs. If you’re interested in bringing Feministing to your center, campus or organization, email us here (tpaperny[at]gmail[dot]com) for more information on fees and availability. The sooner you get in touch with us, the better — we’re booking Fall and Spring events now!
