Dear Beloved Reader, we're going to be real with you. We're asking you to join our membership program so we can become fully financially sustainable (and you get some cool perks too!) With plummeting ad rates across the media industry, we're at an urgent risk of shutting down. And we don't want you to face Trump and his kind without the unique resources we provide. If everyone reading this only gave $12, we could raise enough money for the entire year in just one day. For the price of a single lunch out, you can help save us. We're an independent feminist media site, led entirely by people of color, and that pays everyone who writes for us. If Everyday Feminism has been useful to you, please take one minute to keep us publishing the articles you've come to rely on us for. Thank you! Click here to join!
“No, where are you really from?” Donald Trump’s not the only one breeding fear of “outsiders.” These xenophobic phrases are in our everyday language – check them out to make sure you’re not part of the problem.
The one about undocumented immigrants “stealing our jobs” is just the start. Do you believe any of these common myths? Even feminists and other allies perpetuate them – and this author’s sharing why they must stop.
