A message from Meghan Murphy:
Hello friends of Feminist Current!
This project is truly a labour of love. Writing, podcasting, interviewing incredible feminists, activists, writers, and academics from all around the world is incredibly fulfilling and I feel so lucky to have the opportunity to do this work. I have learned and continue to learn more from readers, commenters, listeners, allies, and interviewees than I ever could have dreamed. I am so moved and grateful to be a part of the feminist community and am touched that you would choose, out of all the places you could go online, to spend your time and energy here at Feminist Current. I can’t thank you enough for being here, for supporting Feminist Current, and for participating in this ongoing conversation, whether it be simply by listening, reading, or by spending time in the comment section.
All that said, and as much as I do love this work, it is work and there are costs associated as well as it being an extremely time-consuming project. This is not, by any means, a profitable enterprise. I am a working class woman, am under-employed, have student loan debt, bills, rent, and a dog, and I do not have any kind of secret stash of cash. I do this work on my own time because I think it is important. The fact is that the kinds of ideas and issues we discuss here at Feminist Current are not the kinds of ideas and issues that are discussed in the mainstream media or even, often, in progressive media. If it weren’t for this space, there would be few other venues for the kind of work and writing we publish here even to exist online. I created Feminist Current so that there could be space for these conversations to take place — conversations that challenge dominant discourse and popular discourse around women and feminism.
I want to be able to continue to do this work — to continue podcasting, to continue writing, to continue providing space for other bloggers and feminists to share this space. Thanks to many friends who have helped me out along the way, I have been able to keep my costs low but in order to continue to maintain this site and to produce content on a regular basis, I need your help!
