This time the call is coming from inside the organization! With Anita away at the moment, my only way of venting to her was to leave a message on our one-of-a-kind, state-of-the-art Feminist Answering Machine! I just had to express both my concern and my disgust at the re-emerging tide of trans-exclusionary so-called “feminism,” and assert that it is absolutely necessary for feminists (including us here at Feminist Frequency, but also feminists everywhere) to state, emphatically and unambiguously, that trans women are women and that a feminism that excludes us is no feminism at all.

Pitch In
