Follow Friday is a space to highlight online sites we should be supporting that delve into women’s issues and give a voice to women across identities.
This Follow Friday I am featuring the online publication Feministing!
Feministing is a website created to discuss feminist issues. According to Feministing:
Feministing’s Community blog exists to provide a platform for feminist and pro-feminist writing, to connect feminists online and off, and to encourage activism. We hope that the Community blog will be a forum for a variety of feminist voices and organizations.
The Community blog is open to anyone who would like to join. However, in order to maintain a progressive and safe discourse on the site, anti-feminist Community posts are not permitted; the Feministing editors believe that racism, classism, ableism, homophobia, transphobia, and hate speech constitute anti-feminism and have no place on the site.
This website is a great place to go and read about current events that correspond to feminist issues. If you’re looking for a place to learn about feminism and it’s applications to what is happening in the world today, I would thoroughly recommend this site to you.
