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 However, anti-feminist posts will not be published, and we believe that racism, classism, ableism, homophobia, transphobia, and hate speech constitute anti-feminism and have no place on the site.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

Gender & Public Sector Careers: How Are They Connected?

The representation of women in healthcare and public policy-related leadership positions is predictably unimpressive: according to Ernst & Young Global Limited, “Only five countries in the G20 have over a third or more women in senior leadership roles across the public sector.  Canada (45.9%), Australia (39.2%), South Africa (38.1%), the United Kingdom (36.2%) and Brazil (33.8%)…”  Because the statistics for women in leadership is so low for this field, it is perhaps justified to put out a call-to-action for women to enter the profession in droves: especially since so many public health concerns affect women, specifically.

Why Do You Hate Us?

It wasn’t too long ago, that thousands of women and children from Central America, traveled hundreds of miles to our border seeking refuge from poverty and violence.  After surviving this harrowing journey and surrendering peacefully to authorities, these refugees were then greeted by xenophobic racists, demonized by the media, crammed into overfilled detention centers, and today many have been deported.

How it Actually Feels to Be in a Violent Relationship

The National Coalition Against Domestic Violence has reported that a woman is assaulted every 9 seconds in America. However, thousands of cases each year go unreported. Unreported abuse is largely due to the fact that most abuse comes from a loved one.

How Smartphone Technology Could Save Women’s Rights Under a Trump Presidency

There’s been a lot of controversy surrounding President-elect Donald Trump, as we all know. He boasted about sexually assaulting women but claimed it was locker-room talk, described women in derogatory ways and even supported the idea that women should be punished for having an abortion. Millions of women were psychologically, intellectually and emotionally assaulted by Trump’s words and actions, and now it’s about to get physical.
