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 However, anti-feminist posts will not be published, and we believe that racism, classism, ableism, homophobia, transphobia, and hate speech constitute anti-feminism and have no place on the site.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. Posts that contain no feminist lens or analysis, or that are “spammy” in nature, will also 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 approved, you’ll receive a confirmation email that contains important information on how to set up your profile and submit your draft for review. Please read these instructions before getting started!

What It Means To Be A Woman Who Drinks

Someone’s looking at me and my friends and judging us for how many drinks we decided to buy. A man just bought my friend a drink and is now harassing her because she doesn’t want to drink it. Another friend was just called a “slut” because she’s wearing high heels and is dancing by herself. A guy we we’re seemingly having a good time with assumed that one of us would go home with him because of the amount of drinks we have had. These are the kinds of nights I have experienced and so has any woman who chooses to drink.

3 Liberties You Can Give Yourself As A Feminist

When I got introduced to feminism, I wanted to be the perfect feminist. The one that adheres to all values, who doesn’t let sexism go unpunished, who does not make a single mistake in her life. Unfortunately, time and again, I used to keep making mistakes.

Reframing Feminism

As feminists, we need to be honest with ourselves about our movement.  There is a major problem with contemporary feminism (“third-wave feminism”).  It is the insistence on the homogenous constructs of gender that span time and space.  Many outlets on the internet serve as platforms for people to contribute ideas on gender, politics, and feminism.  But without a self-examination of the ways we approach certain topics and the historical development of these particular approaches, we will never be able to ground our analyses in historical reality, leaving it to freely float around in the obscure discursive realm and be utilized by many people, especially feminists, who only provide trivial platitudes on serious issues.

For example, you might hear the term “patriarchy” used to describe the type of oppression that women face in society as well as in most societies throughout history.  This term is never defined ...

Harriet Tubman is Not the Face of Capitalism

In April, US Treasury Secretary Jack Lew announced that he wanted to redesign the $20 bill to include the image of Harriet Tubman.  She was a conductor of the “Underground Railroad” who led hundreds of other escaped slaves to freedom.  The new currency is proposed to enter circulation in 2020, unless US Representative from Iowa, Steve King, and others can block the redesign.
