Feministing’s Community site offers a platform for a variety of feminist activists and organizations to write their own blog posts, rants, reflections, poems, you-name-it. The Community site is open to anyone who would like to submit a post. However, anti-feminist posts will not be published, and we believe that racism, classism, ableism, homophobia, transphobia, and hate speech constitute anti-feminism and have no place on the site. Be sure to check out our comments/Community policy on the FAQ page before submitting your first post. Additionally, posts that contain no feminist lens or analysis, or that are “spammy” in nature, will probably not be accepted.

To get started, click “sign up” below. You’ll be asked to create an account on the site and provide a very brief (one sentence) description of your first post. Once your account is set up, you’ll be able to edit your profile to add a bio and links to your social media sites. In order to have an avatar photo, you’ll need a Gravatar account. If you don’t have one already, create one using the same email account associated with your Feministing account, and then upload a photo of yourself.

The Women’s Protection Unit Fighting ISIL

On November 1, 2014, protesters worldwide took part in World-Kobanê-Day demonstrations, condemning ISIL’s attacks on the Turkish-Syrian border town of Kobane. They did so to declare solidarity with active resistance factions in the region, the most famous of which was, and still is, the YPJ.

Who are the YPJ?

Taking the “Fem” out of feminism?

Feminism has been ever-evolving these past few years. Its expanding presence in the media and in everyday conversations is giving people a chance to really discuss ongoing gender inequalities rather than simply push it aside as we have done for so long.

The Reverse-Samson Effect: How Cutting My Hair Changed My Life
