What Is Feminist.com?

"Changing the world for the better takes passion, dedication, information, resources, timeliness and mutual support. Today's activists need to access all that faster than ever before, so Feminist.com puts it at our fingertips.”
– Gloria Steinem

Committed to Awareness. Education. Activism. Empowerment.

Feminist.com is a thriving online community fostering awareness, education and activism for women all across the world. We serve as the Internet’s definitive hub for resources and information dedicated to women's equality, justice, wellness and safety. Like a "feminist Google," Feminist.com facilitates connections between women and the many, varied organizations serving their needs and interests worldwide.

As a library, a promoter of activism, a networking engine, and an Internet "home" for women all over the world, Feminist.com advances women-friendly organizations, increases civic involvement, and promotes self-sufficiency, spiritual health and general wellness. We make the global personal by connecting individuals to new ideas, information, organizations and each other, and by providing a safe space for diverse dialogue.

Our online community empowers people to transform and re-imagine the roles of women and men and encourages people to break barriers so they can be full human beings in the world. For the past two decades, Feminist.com has connected individuals with organizations, resources, and each other. We assist our visitors in finding the causes, issues and organizations that resonate with them, leveraging the massive potential of the Internet to connect, educate, and empower.

Over the last two decades, the non-profit Feminist.com has provided millions of visitors with quality news, original articles, exclusive interviews, anti-violence resources (including a comprehensive anti-violence resource guide in partnership with V-Day), and the critically acclaimed Ask Amy column by noted author and activist Amy Richards (Manifesta, Grassroots) with advice and information on issues impacting women and girls.

We also feature columns continually updated by organizations such as Amnesty International, Equality Now, Men Can Stop Rape, the Nobel Women's Initiative, Omega Institute, the Younger Women's Task Force, the Women's Media Center and various other vital columns. Women all over the world are actively connecting to information, organizations and each other, through the useful and varied links, activism alerts, event listings, and women-owned business listings offered at Feminist.com.
