Join the Feminist Party: An Introduction

Here We Are: Feminism for the Real World is a guide to understanding what it means to be a feminist and an invitation to one of the most important, life-changing, and exciting parties around. This is a chance to dive in and out of the different experiences, ideas, and beliefs that underlie feminism.

Feminists come in every shape, size, form, and background. What unites feminists is the belief that every person—regardless of gender, class, education, race, sexuality, or ability—deserves equality. This is a movement about embracing differences and encouraging change that benefits all facets of society. This is a movement about listening as much as it is about speaking up.

Here We Are: Feminism for the Real World aims to enlighten, inspire, and encourage critical thinking, as well as thoughtful action in your everyday life.

Let’s get the feminist party started!
