Feministing #TimesTen: We’re relaunching Feministing, and we need your money!

You know the Feministing crew doesn’t like to beat around the bush. We haven’t done a lot of that in the almost ten years we’ve been around, and we won’t do it now. We’d rather be straightforward: we need your money.

For nearly a decade, we’ve been severely under-funded, earning a shoestring budget from ad revenue while mainly running the site as a labor of love. It’s no longer sustainable, and it’s time to change that. This month, we’re running a Kickstarter campaign to fund a huge relaunch of Feministing. And we hope you’ll be part of it!

Happy birthday Zerlina!

You may have noticed a lot of Feministing crew members have birthday right around now. Yes, this is part of a nefarious plan for Scorpios to take over the blog. And Saturday was Zerlina Maxwell‘s birthday!

Feministing names new Senior Editor, Editors, and Contributors!

There’s been a lot of big changes happening around these parts, with Samhita, the last member of the Feministing original recipe crew, stepping down as Executive Editor and Lori, Maya, and Jos becoming Executive Directors. Now we’re pleased to announce more recent staffing changes:

Feministing names new Executive Directors!

By Lori, Maya, and Jos

“Feminist blogs have quietly churned out feminist leaders for the last decade. While some may be looking for the “Next Great Feminist Leader,” we realized early on that’s not the kind of leadership 21st Century feminism needs. Many of us are leaders in our fields, working online and off to bring stories, complexity, and new voices to our work. We’ve indirectly proven that leadership looks different in the age of mass participation and global movements. There is no one leader; there is instead the sum of all of us.” – Samhita Mukhopadhyay

Samhita has been an incredible Executive Editor and mentor to all of us. Her stepping down comes at a time when the Feministing ...

Because I knew you, I’ve been changed for good

“I am going to write fire until it comes out of my ears, my eyes, my noseholes–everywhere. Until it’s every breath I breathe. I’m going to go out like a fucking meteor!” Audre Lorde 

I joined Feministing in February of 2005. At the time I was living in San Francisco, CA, and I was working as a substitute school teacher. I had little direction as to where my career was going, no “bigger plan” for myself or how I was going to weave in what I had been told I should cultivate – a passionate, righteous voice committed to gender justice.

When I started blogging, my writing was rough; it was angry and it was righteous. I have no formal training in ...

“I loved that the speakers were down to earth and were easy for others to relate to. I have had nothing but rave reviews from those who were in attendance. My favorite part was the panel discussion because it brought outside perspectives to the issue of sexual violence on college campuses.” -Lindsay Moore, student organizer, Miami University

For four years, the Feministing crew has been traveling to colleges and community centers to talk feminism, organizing, and blogging with students, activists, and professors. Events are booking up fast for the fifth year of our speaking tour, Feministing: Offline and Unfiltered. And we want to make sure we get a chance to meet all of you!

As we approach Feministing’s ...
