One of our favorite sites on the internet is The Feminist Wire, which describes itself as a site for “socio-political and cultural critique of anti-feminist, racist, and imperialist politics pervasive in all forms and spaces of private and public lives of individuals globally.” They have an incredible team of writers and editors “that span genders, sexualities, professions, races, ethnicities, ages, and geographies.” Their content is smart and often covers ground that other sites do not.
Here is a random sampling of some of the work you can find on there:
- Zero Dark Thirty and the Problem of Pakistan by Sophia Azeb (Feb. 24, 2013)
- Choosing Our Own Lives: Two 40-Something Feminists Reflect on Roe by Aishah Shahidah Simmons and Monica J. Casper (Jan. 22, 2013)
- Django Unchained: A Critical Conversation Between Two Friends by David J. Leonard and Tamura A. Lomax (Dec. 31, 2012)
- Kasandra Michelle Perkins: We Must Say Her Name by David J. Leonard (Dec. 3, 2012)
- Take Care: Notes on the Black (Academic) Women’s Health Forum by Aimee Meredith Cox, Aishah Shahidah Simmons and Tamura A. Lomax (Nov. 12, 2012)
- Can I Live? by Analena Hope Oct. 29, 2012)
Up to this point, the writers and editors of The Feminist Wire have sustained the site financially out of their own pockets.
Now, The Feminist Wire has launched a crowdsourcing effort on Indiegogo to raise funds “to continue the work of gender and racial justice on the ground through our K-12 Elementary Feminisms program and our collection of e-books on gender, sex, sexuality, race and media.” If you’d like to contribute, you have until April 1, 2013 at 11:59 EST.
