Bring Feministing to your campus!

Since the Fall of 2009, Feministing has been traveling to college campuses to talk feminism – from the “war on women” to transgender liberation, from building consent culture on campuses to racial justice, from online activism to Beyonce. And we’re hitting the road again for our sixth year! We’re currently booking events for this current school year, so now’s a great time to get in touch about bringing us to campus. We’ve got brand new speaking event options this year – check out our speaking tour page for all the details, and read on to learn about our panels.

The Feministing Five: Elrod

Coming to you in a glitter-covered portrait of low riders and the big-haired ladies who ride ‘em, Elrod and the Femme Cartel present “VaVa Vroom!” at the Betti Ono gallery  in Oakland, CA, opening on Friday, July 4th from 6:00 – 9:00 PM. The exhibit, which will be open until August 9th 2014, displays Elrod’s newest creations that place a feminist lens on this subculture, presenting lowrider women holistically with their deep gazes and bold personalities.

While doing research for this interview, I was really excited to learn more about the women who are a part of the lowrider scene (watch the trailer for “The Unique Ladies,” a documentary about the first all-woman Low Rider club, here) and ...

Get free tickets to an advance screening of the abortion-themed indie rom-com Obvious Child!

I’ve been excited about Obvious Child since way back when it was just a short. And I couldn’t be more thrilled that it’s been turned into a full-length feature and is receiving critical acclaim.

As we’ve mentioned on the blog previously, Obvious Child is a huge breath of fresh air. Cultural depictions of abortion are not generally the greatest, often feeding into stigma or myths. Obvious Child provides an honest look of the choices available to women when facing an unplanned pregnancy. That’s why I’m so pumped to hang out with you all IRL and watch it together!

While the movie doesn’t open in select theaters until June 6, you can attend an advance screening of the film ...

Feministing Five: Elisa Kreisinger

 Cutting, splicing, and reattaching her way through pop-culture, Elisa Kreisinger is a vibrant artist of the 21st century. Elisa, through her work at Pop Culture Pirate, creates feminist multi-media remixes of popular culture which lucky for us, she shares with the web. For example, she’s created works that reinvent shows like The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills to create a feminist contestant, have introduced a passion between Mad Men’s Don Draper and Roger Sterling, and (perhaps my personal favorite) documented Peggy Olson’s growth from entry-level to boss. 

Elisa’s remixes are smart, pithy, and entertaining, but they also express the potential for pop-culture to centralize more identities and more communities. Additionally, Elisa has become an advocate for ...

There’s a conference for queer women in tech and it looks awesome

 

Are you a woman? Queer?  Do you work in tech? If so, I hope you’re able to go to the Lesbians Who Tech (LWT) summit that is taking place in San Francisco, CA February 28 to March 2nd. This conference will the first held by the Lesbian Who Tech group, which calls itself  “a community of queer women in or around tech (and the people who love them).” Looking around a room and feeling like the only one from your community can be really rough. Lesbians Who Tech exists to combat the negative effects of that type of isolation and now there’s a chance to connect with other women from all over the world.
