Introducing New Team Members and Saying Goodbye to Alexandra

We’ve got good news and sad news for you today — one goodbye but many more hellos.

First, the sad news: our wonderful Alexandra is leaving the site. Words can’t express how lucky we’ve been to have her as a member of our crew. Since she came into our life as a winner of the Feministing “So You Think You Can Blog” contest four years ago, we’ve been honored and proud to call her a colleague and friend. From spearheading a national conversation around campus sexual assault, to encouraging us to dream big, to fostering critical dialogue around feminist contemporary literature, to being a supportive member of the Feministing fam, Alexandra has given us so much, so generously. We’re immensely proud of everything she’s accomplished, and are excited to watch her continue to fight the good fight in the months and years ahead.

Next, we’re thrilled to welcome some new members to our crew! You may have seen some of their writing on the site already, and you should expect more smart feminist commentary from them in the future. Read about their backgrounds below and be sure to give them some love in the comments and on Twitter.
