I like to check in with these sites every day; each brings something different to the table, but they are all important to providing a well-rounded daily dose of women-centric news.
Bitch is a (fantastic) print magazine with a (equally fantastic) website component. Bitch explores modern day feminism in a totally unique way, and has one of the most diverse and unique voices out there. After spending just a few minutes on their site, I promise you’ll want to join the B-Hive- there are lots of different levels of “B’s”- or at the very least just stick around and read the articles for awhile. You can also help support feminist media by giving the gift of Bitch.
“Feministing editors believe that racism, classism, ableism, homophobia, transphobia, and hate speech constitute anti-feminism and have no place on the site.” – need I say anything more?
The most important thing about HelloGiggles is its “no judgement or snark” policy. It’s a safe place for girls of all ages to find everything from innovative nail art to learning about the Queen of the Day- a strong woman who is making a difference in her community.
Like the other divisions of Huffington Post, you can find A LOT of information on this site. They share several articles a day, and I usually find one or two to be of interest. It’s a great place to find a variety of voices.
You never have to guess where the women at Jezebel stand on an issue. This site is full of snarky, delicious rhetoric- and what’s even more enthralling is the comments section, a place where I can lose hours in my workday. They cover everything from fashion to politics and with an enviable and unapologetically feminist slant.
Anyone who is familiar with The Women Take Over knows we support Lean In. Besides our collaboration, their site has articles on everything from parenting to female athletes to celebrating the “Lean In” moments of real, hard-working women. Their project that asks “What would you do if you weren’t afraid?” is an endless source of inspiration and certainly makes us think about the things that hold us back.
The cool thing about MissRepresentation is they’re really out there doing something. They have a documentary that you should definitely check out, and I really love their Facebook feed- they share some really great information online.
It’s widely known that Tavi Gevinson is a bright shining star for the future of feminism. Her vision comes to life in Rookie, a place that has honest talk about what life is really like as a teenager. Whether you’re in the throes of young womanhood or just looking back on it, it’s a refreshingly frank view on life as a girl.
Smart Girls at the Party
How could you not love a site dedicated to encouraging girls to be the smartest they can be, and to celebrate other smart girls? Besides- it’s brought to you by the incredible Amy Poehler.
A collaboration between Amanda de Cadenet and Demi Moore, The Conversation, a television show that aired on Lifetime last year, shared interviews with strong, powerful women with familiar faces, in an intimate way that you’ve never seen before. Now the website component shares information on everything from sex to career and finances. There’s something for every woman.
