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 However, anti-feminist posts will not be published, and we believe that racism, classism, ableism, homophobia, transphobia, and hate speech constitute anti-feminism and have no place on the site.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

One Woman Show: The performance of gender and self in the digital age

Humans have been performing their identities since the dawn of language. The concept of constructing a performative self identity emerged primarily in the 1960’s with the advent of Performance Studies as its own academic field.

Sunflower Symposium: Should I forgive my attacker?

Recently, for my class on God, Suffering, and Evil, we were told to read The Sunflower by Simon Wiesenthal. For those who have not read this book, it is about a Holocaust survivor who was asked, while he was in a concentration camp, to forgive a dying Nazi soldier.

A whale of a Tinder tale

I have kind of an interesting relationship with pick up lines on dating sites. They’re usually gross and horrible but I kind of love the possibility of coming up with new ones.

How the creator of a feminist music fest finally started putting her own career first

Alyson Greenfield is a lot of things. She’s a musician, she’s a feminist, and she’s also the creator of all-female musician festival Tinderbox Music Festival, which basically picked up where Lilith Fair left off.

Things nobody tells you about having an invisible disability

This is the first installment of the series “Things Nobody Tells You about Having an Invisible Disability.”

When I was 16, I woke up with a migraine. It wasn’t unusual for me to get migraines at least once or twice a month, but for some reason, this migraine wasn’t going away.

The F word

Why I let my daughter drop the “F-Bomb”

My daughter, who is 4, going on 19, looks up to me as her mother. She imitates me, which is both wonderful and a curse. She has my sense of humor, my laugh and my feistiness.
