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 However, anti-feminist posts will not be published, and we believe that racism, classism, ableism, homophobia, transphobia, and hate speech constitute anti-feminism and have no place on the site.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

Ellen Pao puts sexism in Silicon Valley on trial

I was on the edge of my blue, cushiony seat that I had squeezed through rows of observers to find. Journalists were tap-tapping away at their keyboards as they updated live blogs and churned out stories on deadline.

Military Edition: Would you rather work with a rapist or a woman?

Canada, Australia, North Korea, France, Germany, Poland, Norway, Finland, Sweden, Israel, Denmark, Germany, New Zealand.

If you’re trying to figure out what the relationship between all these countries is, you might find yourself grasping at thin air (particularly when you see North Korea in the group).

Anti-trans laws are the latest example of bigots claiming to “protect womanhood”

Florida and Texas are proposing bills to preclude transgender people from entering restrooms that match their gender identity. Kentucky’s drawing up a similar bill that would apply to school facilities.

It’s time to get rid of #UnsexyLaws!

As long as a girl or woman is not equal in the text of a country’s law and its legal system, she cannot fully participate in or be valued equally in society.  Legally, she is of lesser importance.  Yet, twenty years after 189 governments pledged to “revoke any remaining laws that discriminate on the basis of sex” as part of the Beijing Platform for Action in 1995, only just over half of the laws highlighted in our reports on the subject have been revised, appealed or amended — a great achievement, but one which falls very short of what was envisaged.

Why is India ignoring rape?

Initially intended for a weekend screening to coincide with International Women’s Day, a documentary concerning the brutal rape and murder of a 23 year old Indian woman was shown by BBC Four this month. “India’s Daughter” revisits the 2012 attack on physiotherapy student Jyoti Singh by six men, and gives voice not only to her grieving family, but the rapists.
