Bring Feministing to your school!

Since the Fall of 2009, Feministing has been traveling to college campuses to talk feminism and writing online. And we’re hitting the road again for our seventh year!

We’re booking Fall and Spring events now, so it’s the perfect time to get in touch before our dance cards fill up. We have a few options available for panels and trainings, and make events work to fit your needs and budget. Here’s the deets:


lorijospanelist-300x188Feministing celebrated its 10th anniversary last year, a major milestone in the life of the site and the feminist internet in general. Lori Adelman, Maya Dusenbery, and Jos Truitt became Co-Executive Directors two years ago, and are shepherding the site into the next phase of its life. Feministing’s nerd troika brings you a panel focused on the things they think about every day–feminist history, links between campus, grassroots, and online feminism, what we’ve learned in 11 years of feminist interneting, and the next steps necessary to keep moving our movement forward and winning important victories. There is also a lengthy Q&A to discuss topics of interest to folks on campus. Lori, Maya, and Jos are all available for group panels, or can do two ED events, depending on your budget. The EDs are also available for solo events.

Feministing: Offline and Unfiltered

Since Feministing was founded eleven years ago, we’ve grown from a scrappy “web log” to the most widely read feminist publication of all time–and our crew of contributors has expanded. We’re modeling buzzwords and phrases like “diversity in media” by centering people of color and elevating marginalized voices. And we’re still evolving. In this panel, Feministing’s award-winning writers and members of the leadership team talk about our feminist work, online and off. We also invite a student panelist from your campus to bring a local perspective. The panel is followed by a lengthy Q&A, an opportunity for dialogue around important feminist topics.

So You Want To Write For The Feminist Internet

slutwalk2-300x144This interactive training by Feministing editors and leadership team members focuses on practical skills for adding your voice to the feminist internet. Learn tricks of the trade for writing content, getting it in front of readers’ eyeballs, and contributing to the broader feminist discourse. Feministing sees spreading the word about the activist potential of writing and educating people about the tools to make it happen as central to our mission. This training can be combined with a panel event for a discounted rate.

Additionally, we’ll be writing on Feministing about tour highlights along the way and featuring guest posts by student panelists we bring onto our sessions–giving worldwide attention to the work of your center and/or campus.

Check out our speaking tour page for more info. 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, contact jane AT feministing DOT com for more information on fees and availability. The sooner you get in touch with us, the better–we’re booking events now!
