Feminism, at its core, is a critique of power. ~ Rev. Connie Tuttle
(founder of Circle of Grace Community Church, the world’s only feminist Christian church)
Feminism should be an inclusive community!
But unfortunately, all too often it is not. Whiteness also has a privilege and white womyn, glad to have the luxury to enjoy some of the benefits that men enjoy, often use their own to diminish other womyn of color. Other womyn try to diminish each other daily too-those who are thin, healthy, wealthy, more educated, gender normative, more spiritual, come from the “best” country, and the list goes on…
This has to stop!
We must stop tearing each other down and start building each other up!
And so I have started this blog as a way to build an inclusive, supportive, feminist community. This is a place where I want womyn from all walks of life to post about anything related to feminism, as long as it is promoting sisterhood and not privilege. I want this site to promote not just womyn’s posts, but also their own artwork and events.
This is a trans, womanist, mentally and/or physically disabled, fat, religious, atheist, poor, uneducated, and yes, even male, friendly blog!
I want this to be a place of dialogue and that means no hate speech is allowed. Disagreements? Sure! Obscene language? Okay! Hate? No! I’ve found that when hate speech is allowed, meaningful dialogue dissipates. I am the moderator, so my judgement is final.
If you have any ideas, send them to me at email@example.com
If you would like to submit a post, event listing (for any area), or artwork, send them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org

Please remember that I have just started this site AND I am already incredibly busy, so if I do not have something on this blog that you think is crucial, try not to get upset, but send me the link or the post yourself to the address (do I REALLY need to type it again?!): email@example.com
This is a place for marginalized voices! Let them be heard!!!
