Our Guide to Fall Movies

Fall is movie season. There’s the New York Film Festival, which just ended on Sunday, having run over a fortnight. There’s its cousin across the ocean, the London Film Festival, an 11-day affair, which ended Sunday as well. And there’s the looming specter of the Oscars, and the many film that will be released in these next few […]

Hurricane Matthew has devastated Haiti, but women are at the forefront of the recovery. Read this interview with a women who recently had an abortion at 32 weeks. Heads up, it left me bawling. It’s law school app season so here’s a piece on how the LSAT destroys socioeconomic diversity. Amy Goodman, the journalist from Democracy […]

Feministing Reads: What We’re Reading

Autumn has arrived. Here’s what we — and some of our readers — are reading: Cassie: Miranda July’s The First Bad Man, her first novel. It came out last year but is the most exciting novel I’ve read in a few years (to be fair I read maybe four new novels a year). July is a dream […]

A fear of taco trucks is a fear of Mexican women

Just a few miles from where the final Presidential Debate was hosted last night, Nevada’s Culinary Workers Union built a “wall of taco trucks” in front of the Trump International Las Vegas hotel. Along the “wall,” mostly Latinx and female workers and community members rallied against Trump’s xenophobia and his refusal to bargain with workers who won a union election at […]

To the First Lady, with love. Puy grabs back protests spread nationwide. Today, hundreds of thousands of women in Argentina are expected to join a protest, which they’ve called “Miercoles Negro” (Black Wednesday), after a 16-year-old was raped and tortured. Show More Summary

We Need to Believe Ourselves, Because Donald Trump Sure as Hell Won’t

Just when we thought this election couldn’t get more horrendously traumatic, we have to sit here listening to an orange-faced sexual predator tell the universe, in the most demeaning of terms, that women are liars.  These words are an absolute nightmare. They are the horrible things that have been said to us when we have come forward with our own […]

Quick Hit: #BlackGirlMagic

If you’re feeling like me, then the current news cycle is really testing your patience and well-being. With Trump supporters currently running a Twitter campaign to repeal women’s voting rights, I’ve been in serious need of some joy in my life. So here’s some #BlackGirlMagic to brighten up our day. #WhatADoctorLooksLike: Last week in a […]

A union is building a wall of taco trucks outside Trump’s Las Vegas hotel. Plus, read Michelle Goldberg on why Trump is a human trigger and Josie Duffy Rice on how his treatment of the Central Park 5 reeks of racist imprecision. Perhaps he’s part of why men are treating 2016 as a “normal” election, but women aren’t. Watch Remy Ma […]

U.S. Fighter Jet Painted Pink for Breast Cancer Awareness

Because there’s nothing like fighting breast cancer with the United States military at your side. Or above you, bombing your home and family. I wish I could say pinkwashing has reached new heights here (get it), but this is nothing new. Last year, Massachusetts cops introduced pink handcuffs (because where do women get better healthcare than… in […]

When Our (White) Feminist Heroes Fail Us: On “Notorious RBG” and Colin Kaepernick

Last week, a Supreme Court justice — one of the most prestigious and influential decision makers in the country — was asked to weigh in on a significant public protest against a spate of police brutality that specifically and severely affected the black community. Her response? “I think it’s dumb and disrespectful,” the justice said, adding […]

Mahroh on Self-Care: “Engaging in Self-Care Means Letting Ourselves Feel Fury”

This past year has been an unending parade of violence, replayed over and over again on our television screens, and this week has been no exception. In the wake of the near-daily revelations of women Donald Trump has harassed or assaulted or shamed — not to mention a call to repeal women’s political participation entirely — Feministing friend […]

All 11 Nobel Peace Prizes this year went to men. The number of trans people killed in 2016 has now surpassed last year’s count. 22 people have been killed, a number which does not include killings that were not reported or people who were misgendered. Ten badass climate activists were arrested Tuesday for attempting to […]

MTV’s “Beyond the Wall” Brings Intersectionality to the Election Season

On Indigenous Peoples’ Day, MTV unveiled “Beyond the Wall,” the newest component of it’s Elect This campaign, in New York’s Herald Square. While the interactive video installation only ran for one day, the videos on immigration, identity,...Show More Summary

Trump is a sexual predator. I know it, you know it, we all know it.

Trigger Warning: sexual assault and harassment Last week the Washington Post released a recording of Donald Trump telling Billy Bush that because of his fame, he could get away with doing anything to women including “grabbing them by the pussy” – otherwise known as assault. Today, a growing list of women have come out accusing the presidential […]

This is amazing: today, a group of around 60 women formed a human chain around Trump Tower holding signs that read “Pussies In Formation,” “Pussy Grabs Back,” and “Cunt Touch This.” They condemned Trump and the entire Republic Party for decades of violent policies. Their protest comes a day after a group occupied the Republican National Committee’s […]

Why Do Misogynists Like Donald Trump Love To Talk About How Much They Respect Women?

There is a fundamental contradiction in our attitude toward sexual violence — and Donald Trump embodies it perfectly. After I watched the second debate, beat my breast in mourning, and wiped my tears off my laptop screen , I realized which part of Trump’s soul-killing word diarrhea I hated most. It was a line I have […]

Today is the International Day of the Girl Child. Read President Obama on why “nothing should stand in the way of strong girls with bold dreams,” and Ambassador Rice on why today is important. Are you sick of reading about how horrible Donald Trump is? I thought I was, too. Until Jia and Rebecca came along. Here’s your […]

Coming Out and Dispelling Anti-Blackness

Today, October 11th, marks the 28th National Coming Out Day, a holiday that highlights the potential power in coming out for LGBTQ people. It also highlights the ongoing homophobia, biphobia, and persistent challenges faced by LGBTQ people, whether they choose to ‘come out’ or not. In honor of this day, I want to share one […]

The Feministing Five: Tracy Droz Tragos

Earlier this year, Donald Trump’s running mate Mike Pence signed an Indiana bill that prevents women from getting abortions if their fetus has genetic abnormalities. In many other states across the country, enforced waiting periods,Show More Summary

Review: ‘Certain Women’

The edit shapes the film. Director Kelly Reichardt is perhaps known best for Wendy and Lucy, from 2008, which stars Michelle Williams as a hand-to-mouth drifter searching for her dog. Like Wendy and Lucy, Reichardt’s newest film, Certain Women, was adapted from short fiction. But it is the way Certain Women tracks together three stories, and […]
