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 However, anti-feminist posts will not be published, and we believe that racism, classism, ableism, homophobia, transphobia, and hate speech constitute anti-feminism and have no place on the site.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

Having it all or anything at all

It seems not a day goes by when I’m not reading another headline arguing whether women can have it all, or, more accurately, why they can’t.
