It’s the end of the year, and Feminist Frequency was planning to celebrate. We were planning to celebrate our amazing accomplishments in 2016, and introduce some of the projects that we have coming up. However, our plans have changed.

Over the past few days, women, people of color, trans and queer folks, and many others have been the target of hateful acts of aggression and harassment. Last week, I posted a video responding to the election results and reminding us all that we have to address sexism, racism, and bigotry – especially as they pervade mass media. That’s what Feminist Frequency does – and our work is critical right now.

We need your help now more than ever before

We cannot just celebrate anymore. But we’re still planning. Feminist Frequency is committing the month of December to helping you find clear ways to join in defending and promoting the equitable treatment of women, people of color, LGBTQ people, and people with disabilities – online, in the media, and at all times. Each week, we’re going to celebrate one of the critical successes that you helped us achieve over the past year – and we’ll also focus on one concrete action that you can take to enact our values of justice, intersectionality, accessibility, activism and advocacy. Four weeks, four achievements, and four ways that we can support one another well into the future.

First, we need your help now more than ever before. Feminist Frequency has come so far over the past few years. As we move ahead, your support will help us to continue embracing feminist values, rejecting sexism, and challenging all forms of unjust representations of individuals and communities.

I’m so grateful for your support, your contributions, and your ongoing commitment to making media more inclusive. There are four years ahead. Donate now and join us in December. Together we can ensure continued progress.

With gratitude,






Feminist Frequency analyzes the connections between popular culture, the current political climate, and societal issues such as gender, race, and sexuality.

You can help us speak out against the normalization of sexual assault and harassment, racism and bigotry, and advocate for more inclusive media. All of our work is completely free and available to anyone with an internet connect.

We rely on contributions from people like you to keep it that way.

Donate now. Help us continue this work.
