New favorite Instagram: Feminist_Tinder

I’m definitely swiping right on Feminist_Tinder, a new Instagram account where one woman is documenting what it’s like navigating Tinder as a feminist. Laura Nowak just added the line “hello i am a feminist” to her profile, and the guys do the rest.

They Were Our Sisters: Feminists Should Not Abandon Mya Hall or Miriam Carey

When I heard the news about how the NSA’s headquarters was supposedly attacked by two “men dressed as women” who tried to barrel through a security cordon around Fort Meade -- one of whom was fatally shot I immediately feared the worst. A knot twisted in my stomach, even as I kept studiously silent in public about the issue, waiting for more facts to come out about the two people, each detail seeming to confirm my worst fears.

The Feministing Five: Anayvette Martinez

Anayvette Martinez is one of the co-founders of the amazing organization, The Radical _____ (Formerly known as the Radical Brownies). I spoke to her this week about youth power and incredible local communities, and I wished that I could go back in time and join this organization myself!
