Intersectional princesses for the little feminists in your life

We dream of a sustainable future, but while we figure that out, any little bit of money helps (even just 20 dollars), whether it’s to pay our awesome tech team, give a small stipend to our writers or provide meals at our annual retreats.

We’ll be back Wednesday

Despite being a bunch of godless heathen feminists, we’re taking the next couple days off from blogging. We’ll be back Wednesday with our end of the year content.

In the mean time, if the holidays are a difficult time of year for you, here are a couple resources I’ve found:
The December Project, to help members of the trans community survive the holidays.
Surviving the Holidays as Queer People of Color: Give the Gift of Media

Please feel free to share other resources (or holiday wishes) in the comments.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to continue indulging my Christmas obsession like a good Jewish girl.
