Feminism isn’t about making women stronger. Women are already strong. It’s about changing the way the world perceives that strength. – G.D. Anderson. The latest wave (or better, tsunami) of feminism is huge – especially on the internet. The spreading of ideas via social media is mobilizing women all over the world like we saw at the Women’s Marches. Because women’s rights are human rights. And that’s just what it is.
So, you want to read more about contemporary feminism? Great! With so wide variety of perspectives online, it’s easy to expand your knowledge. We’ve summed up our favorite websites and resources we use for our daily dose of girl power.
A good ‘old classic. Jezebel (which means, in fact, something like a ‘wicked’ woman) is a feminist blog geared towards women, under the tagline ‘celebrity, sex, fashion for women. without airbrushing’. The website was launched in 2007 and has been relevant ever since. Jezebel is (in)famous for its stop telling women to smile-manifesto.

Teen Vogue has changed their game about a year ago and proved that ‘teen-orientated magazines’ can cover political issues too. Lauren Duca’s article ‘Donald Trump is Gaslighting America‘ went viral and opened the eyes of the masses. Teen Vogue is giving its readers exactly what they want, and that’s more than how to apply my make-up stories.
Oh, the wonderful world of ISSUU. We’ve found the most interesting indie magazines via this link. Like Got A Girl Crush, for example. Or Hoot, The Siren and TomTom mag. So much good stuff around! It’s time to start reading :)
Another favorite. Feministing has been posting thoughtful articles for over a decade. They’ve been offering sharp feminist analysis of everything from pop culture to politics and inspiring young people to make real-world feminist change, online and off.
