Feminists We Love

On February 1, 2013, The Feminist Wire launched the series “Feminists We Love,” which creates space for us to acknowledge and honor those feminists (and womanists)—the established, the less well-known, and the emergent—whose advocacy, scholarship, teaching, activism, cultural work, social entrepreneurial ventures, poetry, visual art, and other modes of “doing” anti-sexist-racist-classist-imperialist-heteronormative-ableist work move the various communities of which they are part in the direction of a more just and equitable world. This series features feminists whose work also amplifies any aspect of TFW’s mission.
