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 However, anti-feminist posts will not be published, and we believe that racism, classism, ableism, homophobia, transphobia, and hate speech constitute anti-feminism and have no place on the site.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.

Is the Bible “God’s love letter” to us all?

I sat in a service the other day, and listened to a guest chaplain speak about how the Bible is God’s love letter to us all. I struggled to hear her greater message within her sermon because my own trauma started to surface.

I got a test for you/You say you want my heart

Keep Ya Head Up: On hip-hop feminism

“I got a test for you/You said you want my heart/Well baby you can have it all/ There’s just something I need from you/Is to meet my boys/I got a lot of boys/And we can make you right/And if you get too high/Baby come over here and ride it out, ride it out.”

The journey from victim to survivor

There are many labels that I am proud to carry: daughter, student, friend, and sexual assault survivor. I was raped on my college campus during my freshman year.

Black Friday destroys village livelihoods in Vanuatu

Cross-posted from UN Women

 Just six months ago the Epau ring road market on Efate Island in Vanuatu was hosting UN Women’s International Day of Rural Women celebrations. The new structure had recently been finished, including a kitchen so the market vendors could cook hot food, and have access to toilets.

When white feminists enable white supremacy

More Black people were murdered by police in 2014 than those who died on 9/11. This is not a fact that’s thrown around in mainstream political discussions and certainly not repeated by Hillary Clinton, ostensibly the candidate for “everyday Americans,” a campaign phrase so hollow it speaks to no one and everyone at the same time.

Rolling Stone’s rape crisis: And the band played on

And on and on and on. Following the release of Columbia School of Journalism’s April 5 report, “A Failure That Could Have Been Avoided,” the majority of media responses have focused on the hows of the fiasco, as did the Columbia report itself: how Rolling Stone‘s seasoned editorial staff deviated from standard editorial procedures in their zeal to publish their highly controversial story “A Rape on Campus” in the December 2014 issue.

The road to rape recovery

September 8, 2014 started out as any regular day. It was hot in Staten Island, NY so as I dressed that morning I chose an ivory colored dress with slits on the sides to let my skin breathe.

Can we talk about sisterhood?

I love women. All women. And especially women of color. And particularly black women. As a same gender loving black cis androgynous woman, I know that the way in which I express my love to different types of women deserves care and thought.
