To the Feminist.com Community,
There is no getting around it ... many of us are shocked by the recent election which highlighted the ongoing presence of misogyny, sexism, racism, homophobia and xenophobia in the United States. However, in the wake of this election there is no question: our work is more important than ever.
Together, we can change the world. We know that at the intersection of world problems such as poverty, war and violence, are the affected lives of girls and women – and more importantly, we have the power to redress these issues. Amplifying women’s and girls’ voices, educating and empowering others, supporting women’s leadership, engaging men as allies in the movement, and creating a safe space for diverse dialogues are key strategies. And for over 20 years, Feminist.com has been doing just that. But we need your help to take this work to the next level.
We have been heartened and inspired over these difficult past weeks by all the women and men who have contacted us to ask what they can do to support Feminist.com in its role as a convener of feminist thought leaders and organizations.
This is an exciting time of transition for Feminist.com. The organization has come a long way from the early days when women only composed 15% of internet users. Now it’s time to evolve and create an inclusive and diverse identity, brand and website that speaks to the future of feminism and reflects all voices.
Together, we can work towards this vision. But we need all hands on deck as we work alongside each other. Feminist.com was never about just one group –it was about a global community, supporting one another and standing together for what is right.
Please support our work and join us as we build towards our future. By making a gift of whatever is possible for you, you will have a significant impact, helping to launch a new chapter at Feminist.com.
We remain grateful for our community and hopeful for the journey ahead.
With thanks and warmest wishes,
The Feminist.com Board of Directors
