HOW PUNK FEMINISM SAVED MY LIFE, ETC.


For the Birds is headed to Ladyfest Philly this weekend to present our workshop Winging It: Nurturing Authentic Communication in Feminist Organizing for the second time (the first time was at last year's C.L.I.T. Fest). I wrote about some of my own experiences in feminist organizing, as well as the workshop for The Media.

The Media was established by Liz Pelly and Faye Orlove in the wake of The Boston Phoenix. Read Liz Pelly's super-satisfying inaugural article about their choice to create The Media here, and an interview with its creators at the Voice. The piece I wrote is in Issue 5, a Ladyfest Philly preview issue. It's a great one, and Katie Alice Greer's piece on community spaces is one of my favorite  things I've read in recent memory.
