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 However, anti-feminist posts will not be published, and we believe that racism, classism, ableism, homophobia, transphobia, and hate speech constitute anti-feminism and have no place on the site.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

Every year, the French National Front (FN hosts a rally in Paris to celebrate the Fête du travail (Labor Day) in front of the magnificently gilded Parisian Opéra. While the locale has little to do with the FN, it was the perfect stage for Labor Day drama.

Sexual violence is a touchy issue. In schools, sexual consent is omitted from the curriculum, but girls clothing choices are policed so they are not distracting or tempting anyone.

Don Draper, Jon Hamm and unspoken lessons in toxic masculinity

Author’s note: contains a few Mad Men season 1 spoilers.

After eight years of watching his ups and downs amid the societal tumult of the 1960’s, on Sunday we finally said goodbye to Don Draper, the philandering yet forlorn ad executive at the center of the hit television drama Mad Men.

A woman’s work

This is a story about a job interview, and it is also a story about millions of job interviews. First, some context: I am an academic who works on women’s issues, and I teach at one of the most prestigious universities in the world.

12 years too late

Dear 14-Year-Old Me,

You know the line in that A. A. Milne poem Mom always recites: “But now that I’m six I’m as clever as clever, so I think I’ll stay six for ever and ever?” It’ll be another four years before you really understand why that’s ironic and funny.

protest sign saying "sex workers rights = human rights"

Hawaiian sex workers deserve protection, too!

The weekend of May 3rd, there was a sting operation in Honolulu, and over a dozen workers at several massage parlors were arrested. Massage parlor arrests are not out of the ordinary in Hawaii. What makes this particular operation unusual, however, is that the women were all taken in to custody charges of 4th degree sexual assault.
