We’re incredibly excited to share our vision for the new Everyday Feminism, what we’re calling EF 2.0!
And with your help, we’ll bring it to you in Spring 2018.
In true EF style, here are 3 things we think you’ll love about the new Everyday Feminism:
1) A Beautiful New Site Design
Let’s be honest, the current Everyday Feminism site was built for functionality, not aesthetics. Forced to make room for ads, our user experience really took a backseat to financial necessity.
By Spring 2018, we want to bring you a beautiful new site that puts both aesthetics and the user experience front and center.
Quick to load, easy to navigate, a joy to look at and explore — all the things you deserve when spending time with us.
We can’t wait to totally transform your experience on our site for the better, whether on mobile, desktop, or tablet.
2) An Online School for Social Justice
You, our readers, have told us over and over that what you love most about our articles is how they help in your real, everyday lives.
Starting in early 2018, we want to give you an even deeper level of support through an expanded offering of online courses, in addition to the existing magazine.
Released on a monthly basis, our new online courses will go more in-depth than is possible in our articles, helping you create truly transformative change in your life.
The courses will walk you through powerful journeys of healing and help you work more effectively with your own areas of privilege.
We’ll also be releasing courses focused on professional development for social justice activists, including a course on writing for social justice.
And, like all our past offerings, there will be scholarship options to make sure these courses are accessible to everyone.
3) No. More. Ads.
Trust us when we say: we hate the ads — perhaps even more than you do.
So, starting with the launch of the new site, there will be no more external ads and definitely no more ‘bad ads’ (like redirects) that have been such a pain for all of us.
We’re so looking forward to this one!
What isn’t changing in EF 2.0 is everything you already love about Everyday Feminism — our amazing articles, our incredible, diverse writers, our culture and commitment to doing this work with love.
If you’re also excited about this new vision for EF — please help us make it happen!
We want to raise $30,000 by the end of the year to support the launch of EF 2.0 in the Spring.
So, whether you can donate $10 or $100, your support right now will make a huge difference in helping us make this dream a reality. We can’t do this without you!
Why We’re Asking For Your Support
Here’s the thing – Everyday Feminism strives to pay people fair wages, amplify marginalized voices, and fight everyday oppression.
And none of those things are valued in our society or deemed as “profitable” – not when Huff Po doesn’t pay their contributors or when “women-friendly” (but not actually intersectional feminist) sites are getting million dollar investments.
We know that Everyday Feminism is a unique platform. We:
- Are led completely by people of color and who are predominately queer
- Approach social justice work through an inside-out and educational lens, helping you break down and stand up to the everyday oppression that you encounter in your daily lives
- Provide resources that you can share with others so you don’t feel like you have to do that emotional labor of educating them
- Are dedicated to an activist praxis based in compassion, starting with self-compassion
- Are completely bootstrapped and operate on a shoe-string budget
We know that what we offer is different from every other feminist website out there. And we know that you know that, too!
And we want to do even more — because that’s what these times call for.
We need your support to make this vision of a new Everyday Feminism come to life. Help us give you the kind of support we all deserve in times like these!

- What are your major expenses? We run a pretty lean organization in terms of overhead with 80% of our expenses paying for staff, benefits, and posts. Within our limited financial resources, we strive to pay equitably and pay for all posts, including even cross-posts – even though the industry norm is to pay nothing or a pretty low fee for even original posts. And since we’re a bootstrapped independent media organization comprised primarily of queer people of color, the money to pay for this important work doesn’t come from venture capitalists or a large media conglomerate – which is sometimes the case for other media sites.
- Is this donation tax-deductible?: No, it is not tax-deductible since we’re a social justice committed organization, but not a non-profit.
