Thank you for funding Feministing #TimesTen!

We did it! Our Kickstarter campaign ended last night, with 1,037 of you contributing to Feministing #TimesTen for a funding total of $38,958. With this money we’ll be able to relaunch the site, build the groundwork to make Feministing sustainable, and start to pay our whole crew for their hard work.

Big thanks to our incredible Fundraising Advisory Board who helped us put this campaign together and provided so many of the amazing perks. And thanks to the whole Feministing crew for all your tireless work throughout this campaign.

And of course thank you so much to everyone who donated! We’re so grateful for all your support. In addition to contributing, thank you for tweeting, facebooking, and telling your friends ...

It’s the LAST day of our Feministing #TimesTen Kickstarter campaign!

We’re down to the final 15 hours, folks!

Over the past month, we’ve been honored, humbled, and frankly downright giddy that so many of you have donated to support the Feministing #Times Ten relaunch. We’ve never really asked our readers to give to a big fundraising effort like this before, and we were a little nervous about it. But we’ve been inspired to see how the Feministing community has stepped up. We can’t wait to show you what you’ve made possible.

In this final day of the campaign, it’s time for professional procrastinators like me to shine. Maybe you’ve been meaning to donate for weeks but never quite got around to it. If so, it is ...

Feministing Follow Friday: FAB edition

So, ICYMI: we’re fundraising. Just three days after the launch of our Kickstarter, we’ve raised $13,767 — nearly half of our goal. We’ve been really overwhelmed by your support: most of the money we’re raised has come in the form of $10 or $15 donations from loyal readers, which makes us feel like we must be doing something right. Our fundraising advisory board has also been essential for our success thus far. Some of our personal feminist heroes are guiding our efforts behind the scenes and offering some sweet perks for donors (the most recent: our own Academic Feminist, Gwendolyn Beetham, will review and make suggestions on a reader’s grad school ...

Join Rosario Dawson as a backer of Feministing #TimesTen!

The Feministing crew is honored, humbled, and blown away by the outpouring of support our Kickstarter received on its first day. As of writing this, we’re about to cross $10,000 from 300 backers, which brings us 1/3 of the way to our goal for relaunching Feministing!

We know yesterday’s fundraising success is down to you, the Feministing community. We’re so grateful for every dollar you give and everyone you encourage to donate, as well.

We thought you might like to know you were joined yesterday by Rosario Dawson as a backer of the campaign:

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!

Seven mansplaining pitches for Bustle

This week the feminist internet has been fuming about Bustle, a new “website for women” made by Bryan Goldberg, a mansplaining man who didn’t seem to realize that, you know, there are already a couple sites for ladies/feminists out there. His defense? Bustle will set itself apart from the rest of these earnest attempts at significance due to its absurd wealth: the website is launching with $6.5 million in venture capital funding, which is approximately $6.5 million more than Feministing has ever seen, as Jos noted in Wednesday’s DCFS and our recent fundraising appeal.

I could be mad that Goldberg assumes the only measure of a publication – even an expressly feminist enterprise, ...
