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 However, anti-feminist posts will not be published, and we believe that racism, classism, ableism, homophobia, transphobia, and hate speech constitute anti-feminism and have no place on the site.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

Why is Sadie Robertson a role model?

Sadie Robertson is a “famous” person. I use “famous” lightly because while she may be well-known in certain circles, her presence is the result of extending those reality TV fifteen minutes of fame as far one is capable of doing.

Stranger rape: The rape myth vs. the real picture

When I went off to college, my parents sat me down to discuss a very important matter.

“Now Jess, I know that you have a tendency not to take this kind of thing seriously. But this is a serious matter: don’t go off campus alone at night.”

Law finally says “yes means yes!” But, what comes next?

The recent passing of Senate Bill 967 has many advocates, Californians and Feministing bloggers cheering over the first “affirmative consent” standard to ever be set in law. On top of that, SB 967 requires Californian postsecondary institutions to adopt more comprehensive policies and programs regarding sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking.

I have a word TIME could ban

This essay was originally published on The Broad Side.

The furor has finally died down over Time Magazine‘s call to ban the word “feminist” from our vocabulary.

But if TIME is going to insist on tossing perfectly good words from our lexicon, I have a better word for their suggested list of trite and irritating words to ban in 2015.

Why we need feminism

“We don’t need feminism. Everyone’s basically equal nowadays.” As those words fell out of her mouth, I felt my frustration levels starting to rise. I tried to form cohesive sentences in order to explain all that is wrong with her statement, but before I could, she walked away, leaving me dumbfounded.

The Rolling Stone‘s coverage of the UVA rape case-turned-debacle has sparked a recycling of opinions about rape on campus. Slate just released an article by the advice columnist known as “Dear Prudence” admonishing colleges for ruining young men’s careers with their false rape statistics and reactionary, federally-funded policies.
