Happy Birthday, Harvey.

If Harvey Milk were alive, he would have celebrated his 81st birthday yesterday.

As one of the first openly gay elected officials in the country, his work was not only one of a politician but of an activist, encouraging his supporters not only to fight for a more just world, but telling them that electing people from marginalized communities to public office was a critical way in achieving that.

He was assassinated on November 27, 1978, at age of 48. More at Pam’s House Blend.

Happy Birthday Samhita!


It’s a Very Important Day in Feminist History. Today is our Executive Editor Samhita’s birthday!

She’s currently in Panama, probably drinking on a beach right now. I’m not jealous.

It’s a very well deserved vacation. You might have noticed Samhita’s voice on the blog a little bit less over the past few months. It’s cause she was writing a book, called “Outdated: Why Dating Is Ruining Your Love Life.” Don’t you wanna read that like right now? You can pre-order it here. I’ve only read the introduction so far but I can tell you it’s gonna be ah-mazing!

Then Samhita came back to blogging full time and dropped this, which I think is one of the sharpest, most brilliant pieces ...

Happy Birthday Maya!


Maya attack!

It’s Maya’s birthday!

Maya’s a newish member of the blog team here, and I’m so freaking psyched we’ve got her voice on the site. She’s been an invaluable addition, from organizing us to bowl for abortion access (and being officially the best bowler on Team Feministing) to calling out conservative asshat-ery about scary polar bears and womens and black peoples on stamps and rejecting super offensive “human rights” campaigns to brilliant lists about better uses for taxpayer dollars than defending DOMA or different kinds of sex (for serious one of my favorite posts ever). Plus what’s not to love about her love of sexy charts?

I’m particularly grateful to Maya for ...

Happy Birthday Jessica!

Today is Jessica’s 32nd birthday.

The Feministing crew is wishing her a happy one. Jessica became a mama this year, and is busy taking care of Layla Sorella. It’s a tough job, but she’s got the support of a great family and some feminist politics to back it up.

Happy Birthday Jess! Leave her some birthday love in comments.
