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 However, anti-feminist posts will not be published, and we believe that racism, classism, ableism, homophobia, transphobia, and hate speech constitute anti-feminism and have no place on the site.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

A how-to on supporting a victim of relationship abuse

An unfortunate truth is that, statistically speaking, anyone reading this likely knows somebody who is currently or was previously involved in an abusive relationship. We are often unaware of what is going on around us, and this is rarely due to ignorance.

How many is too many?

I’m currently slugging my way through Kristin Luker’s incredibly informative and thought-provoking book, Abortion and the Politics of Motherhood (a highly recommended–though now rather outdated–read).

The appropriation of female visual artists

Female visual artists are having a #culturalmoment right now. Last month The New York Times ran a piece on artists over 70 finally being recognized for their work, ArtNet recently opined on the (continued) lack of representation of women in major museums and shows, meanwhile Yoko Ono is having her first solo MoMA show

What are Triggers?

No matter what the media tries to tell us, sexual assault can be experienced in an infinite number of ways. However, there is one thing that nearly all survivors have in common: triggers.

Yes, gender discrimination is a marketing gimmick

So here I am working in Afghanistan with the United Nations. I just arrived back upset at our housing compound (yes, all UN staff in Afghanistan have to live together in a compound since it is “unsafe”).

Domestic responsibilities by choice

As I was sitting down in a very uncomfortable black leather chair, discussing feminism with an extremely ignorant boy, we came across the topic of women’s domestic responsibilities.
