I’m organizing a meet-up during this year’s NYFLC for the Autostraddle readers who are attending the conference!
The campaigns to get women on American and Canadian currency got me thinking: who are the women who have been on the money? What are their stories? Do they have great hair?
I want us to embark on some serious herstorical journeys through time, but I simply cannot condense herstory into one post, so I’m gonna condense everyone else’s pieces, books, movies, and projects about women’s history into one instead!
Too often, paradigm shifts in the feminist movement are posited as if they come from the past.
Autostraddle readers are cordially invited to the young feminist event of the year — and y’all have the luck to save big on registration.
These women changed feminism forever with their scholarship. Let’s vow to never forget their names.
From girl power to domestic violence, these are the ads screening during today’s big organized athletic event between two teams from I think the United States that have something in them for the rest of us. Mindy Kaling’s in one!
These shouldn’t be revelations. These should be the frameworks of our revolution.
SPOILER ALERT: Gender is (sort of) a myth.
I come bearing every ounce of truth I could muster about “false rape accusations” and the pitiful rape culture the myth of them exemplifies.

Hoping to find some really fashionable forms of misandry? YOU’VE COME TO THE RIGHT PLACE.
Not everything science has given us has made our lives better.
“The other thing I want to tell you about brothers is that we will lead you to believe that you’re the best thing since sliced bread. But we’re slicing your bread and somebody else’s bread, too… if you allow us to do that.”
People surviving street harassment around the world have options. Who knew! 200 plus pages of options, in fact. But one truth remains: all the laws and policies around street harassment haven’t made it disappear.
While men of all colors perpetrate street harassment, addressing it in communities of color calls for specific intra-community solutions rather than broad condemnations of male privilege.
A lot of women went through a lot of shit so you could vote, so shut up and do it.
Although the nation’s highest offices have been sought by many badass women, we have yet to win. It’s enough to make me wish we could go back in time and vote for, well, these chicks.
The conference price tag is pretty hefty, and it can be a stretch to land in New York City on a budget because you want to light your inner fire with sage wisdom and motivational quips. But it’s okay! There’s a free stream of the whole thing!
In which we learn about matrices, intersectionality, and why oppression only works in one direction.
