Daily Feminist Cheat Sheet

Britain has voted to leave the European Union — a win for a blatantly racist, xenophobic campaign waged in the name of ultra-nationalism. As Daniel Trilling writes, “Far-right politics cannot be as easily cordoned off from the mainstream as people would like to believe. Fascists attach themselves to popular causes and drag the debate in their direction. Populists and […]

Justice Beyond Incarceration: Perspectives on Race, Rape, and Brock Turner

We all know about the Stanford rape case, and we know about it for good reason: Because the survivor’s incredible statement to the court got the widespread airtime it deserved. But we know about it for other reasons too. Primarily, we’ve heard a lot about the six-month sentencing of Brock Turner, which many feel is far too […]

For this week’s Feministing Five, I caught up with feminist activist, environmentalist, and aspiring politician Erin Schrode. At 25, the Marin County Democrat ran for Congress in California’s District 2 this month in the hopes of becoming the youngest woman ever elected to the position. Her dynamic campaign focused on human rights, reproductive health, the […]

In terrible news for so many undocumented people awaiting deportation relief, the Supreme Court has tied on Obama’s executive actions to expand DACA and implement DAPA, all but killing any plans to protect millions of undocumented people. Show More Summary

Essential Viewing: the Films of Agnès Varda

The reason why it is essential to sing the praises and recommend the films of Agnès Varda — even when there’s no anniversary or birthday or award to celebrate or death to mourn — is that her work is consistently exceptional yet criminally underseen. Varda has her fair share of admirers and retrospectives, but I’m not sure […]

A must read: Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor’s jaw-dropping dissent slamming racial profiling and mass incarceration.  New York City passed a bill Tuesday that guarantees women in public schools, shelters, and correctional facilities access to pads and tampons. This is the first bill of its kind in the country. Last month was the hottest May […]

Leaving Work to Care for Family Could Cost You Hundreds of Thousands of Dollars

A new interactive from the Center for American Progress helps you calculate how much you will lose if you exit the workforce to care for a family member — and the answers are depressing.  Take me for example: I’m 23 and earn $38,000 a year. If I take off one year of work at the […]

Report: The Environment as the new battleground for human rights

Last year was the most lethal year on record for land and environmental defenders, according to a new report from Global Witness. In 2015, the organization documented the murders of 185 people who were righting to protect their land, forests and rivers against destructive industries.  The report points out that these killings have been on […]

In the Face of Homophobia and Islamophobia, Queer Touch Persists

After the carnage at Pulse nightclub in Orlando I saw a lot of “love is love” messages from well-meaning straight people. Who do you love? It doesn’t matter! They seem to say. It’s all love!  But to me, it would seem to matter more who you touch. Who you feel, not only whom you feel […]

California is Ending One of Its Most Sexist Welfare Policies

In a huge win for anti-poverty advocates, California lawmakers are poised to get rid of the Maximum Family Grant rule (MFG), a policy passed in 1994 that coerced women into having fewer children by depriving them of the resources they needed to raise them. The repeal is expected to benefit about 126,000 children in 93,000 […]

No Islamophobia in the Name of Queers: Mourning and Solidarity in the Wake of Orlando

When I first heard on Sunday morning that fifty people had been killed by a gunman at Latin night in an Orlando gay club, Rick Scott’s voice played over my grief. And over, and over: “This is an attack on our people” said the recording, playing on a loop. “An attack on all of us.” […]

Clinton’s Nomination: A Feminist Milestone?

Editor’s note: This post was co-authored by Mahroh Jahangiri and Dana Bolger. At long last, it’s happened: Hillary Clinton has clinched the Democratic presidential nomination, the first woman in U.S. history to do it.  We don’t think it’s the feminist milestone many claim it to be. Indeed, we don’t believe, as a post on our […]
