Elementary Feminisms

The Feminist Wire is proud to feature young feminists from elementary, middle, and high school. We believe young people should own their voices, be empowered to share their perspectives, and be supported in expressing their needs and interests. We also believe it is not for us to dictate what their feminist and social justice concerns should be, but rather to listen to and learn from them. And to appreciate and respect the diversity of their beliefs and positions. Elementary Feminisms is a vital space for emerging feminists.
