Happy birthday to we!


Every year, a kindly reader/ally reminds us that July 1st is our bday! I appreciate this, as I am enmeshed, most days, in editing 800 things and trying (but always failing) to keep up with writing, emails, comments, Twitter wars, technological disasters, and kissing my puppy’s little face.

Nonetheless, we have made it four years, here at Feminist Current (but we feel about 80), and it’s my great pride and pleasure to see this site and community grow and grow. We would be nothing at all without our many amazing contributors and readers and really nothing at all without our sisters and allies on the ground, working every day to propel this movement forward and to support other women.

If ever I feel sad and low about the sorry state of the world and the ongoing cooptation of our movement by liberals and pornographers, I need only spend some time here to realize how many women (and men!) across the world are pissed off and aren’t going to sit down and shut up about it.

Movements need people, solidarity, and shared goals and I am so grateful to work and fight alongside the most brave, smart, fearless, determined, devoted women in the world.

Thank you for your support, your insight, your feedback, and your dedication to this project we call feminism.

Until we win.
