New Yorkers: Boogie down with us at WAM!Prom 2 next weekend!

Several years ago when Feministing was just a toddler, Samhita, Jessica and myself went to the Women, Action and the Media conference in Cambridge, MA for the weekend — I think it was the first time I met so many people working in social justice and media in one place, and it was a completely exhilarating experience. The conference then, and this organization today, brings to light seriously important discussions around gender justice in media.

Oh, and then there’s the feminist dance parties. That weekend was also the first time I met many of my dear friends in the blogosphere today, where we busted moves all night and celebrated the incredibly hard and often-emotionally difficult work that ...

Save the date: New York Abortion Access Fund fundraiser

On February 9th, the New York Abortion Access Fund will celebrate its tenth anniversary. For ten years, this remarkable organization has been making it possible for New York women to exercise their right to choose when they don’t have the money to afford that choice.

For those of you who don’t know about NYAAF, their mission is to provide grants to women want abortions and can’t afford to pay them. Abortions are legal, but they are expensive, and in some states they are very difficult to obtain: in that sense, abortion is more of a privilege than it is a right. NYAAF tries to combat that problem by granting money to women, often at very short notice, so they can pay ...

We’re on the road!

Things on the site may be moving a wee slow today as Chloe, Miriam and I are heading to Penn State for our Feministing: Offline and Unfiltered tour. (I would have sent a pic from the road, but we left at the buttcrack of dawn therefore aren’t looking nearly as hot as Thelma and Louise at the moment.) Anywho, if you’re in the area, come stop by and say hello! A big thanks to sponsor Fly Magazine and co-sponsors the LGBTA Student Alliance, Agora, and the Women’s Studies Department.

If you’re not in the area but would like to bring Feministing to your school, check out our speaking page for deets ...

This Wednesday: a Feministing happy hour and a farewell to remember

Hey NYC-ers, what are you doing this Wednesday night? If you answered “catching up with some of my favorite feminists, and bidding adieu to Courtney Martin,” then you’re probably headed to the Feministing Happy Hour at Sweet and Vicious!

As Vanessa mentioned last week, the Feministing crew and friends will soon be getting together to celebrate two very special things: the holidays and Courtney.

As you know, Courtney dropped the mic with her last day of officially editing the site in September. We’re incredibly sad to see her go, but are reassured by her commitment to always be part of the Feministing family and keep bringing her big brain and even bigger heart to the table. I ...

NYC Feministing Holiday Happy Hour (and Courtney Martin Lovefest)

It’s been quite a while since our last happy hour, so we’re extra excited about this one.

On Wednesday, November 30th, the Feministing crew will be getting together to celebrate two very special things: the holidays and Courtney Martin. As you know, this lovely lady has been quite a force in the Feministing community — or as we like to call her, our “Ray of Light.” While we’re continuing to work with her in many other capacities — like around the research she’s been doing on the sustainability of the feminist blogosphere — her transition from her role as Feministing Editor is one to commemorate and we thought what better to celebrate with some cocktails and merrymaking. ...

Outdated and Feministing events in the Bay Area for November

It’s time to show California some love! I am getting ready for a two week mini book/Feministing tour to the Bay Area and to spend time with some of our West Coast crew (Jos and Anna–who chose sunshine over snow–how dare they?!). If you live in or around the Bay Area please join us for one or more of these events.

Jos and I will be speaking at UC Merced on Wednesday at 7:30pm about feminism, blogging, social media and how to work to shift the culture of rape and violence in the mainstream media. Get more details here. I will be reading from Outdated followed by a Q&A at Modern Times book store in San Francisco on November 6th ...
