Zerlina speaking“I loved that the speakers were down to earth and were easy for others to relate to. I have had nothing but rave reviews from those who were in attendance. My favorite part was the panel discussion because it brought outside perspectives to the issue of sexual violence on college campuses.” -Lindsay Moore, student organizer, Miami University

For four years, the Feministing crew has been traveling to colleges and community centers to talk feminism, organizing, and blogging with students, activists, and professors. Events are booking up fast for the fifth year of our speaking tour, Feministing: Offline and Unfiltered. And we want to make sure we get a chance to meet all of you!

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? What’s next for the feminist internets? What we can do to keep building power and winning feminist victories? There’s exciting changes coming to Feministing, inspired by all this reflecting and visioning, and we’re jazzed to engage these conversations with you at our events.
Want to hang out and nerd out with us? Then set up a Feministing speaking event today!

Lori, Jos, and student panelist at a speaking event.The keynote panel features writers from our award-winning team covering a range of hot topics followed by a lengthy Q&A (I’m currently working on new material to discuss at events. Animated GIFs are involved). We invite a student panelist from your campus to bring a local perspective as well. We can also 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’re revamping our blogging training right now to reflect the current state of the social justice internets and our visions for what’s ahead.

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 — events for Fall and Spring are booking fast!
