Support Feminist Review

February 22, 2010 § 1 Comment

Do you know about Feminist Review? It’s pretty great: A collective of twenty editors and 200 writers that review everything from films to fashion, tunes to text.

Valentine’s Day marked the start of their month-long fundraising campaign, I ♥ FR. The goal is to raise $5,000 –- the entire year’s expenses –- in order to keep the blog running.

From an email:

Founded in 2006 by longtime activist and media professional Mandy Van Deven, Feminist Review is an entirely volunteer-run forum where readers discuss books, music, film, and other products from feminist perspectives. “Like many independent media projects, the loss of ad revenue has caused us to dip heavily into our savings. Now, despite the fact that the number of visitors to our site has doubled in the past year, we’re teetering toward going into the red,” informs Van Deven. “The I ♥ FR campaign is reaching out to those new readers to ask them to help us survive this recession. If just 50 people commit to making a monthly donation of $10 for the remainder of the year, we will meet our goal.”

The campaign has already raised $530.

Please consider donating to keep Feminist Review — a publication that “prides itself in being a non-traditional, woman-centered, inclusionary resource for readers around the globe” — alive. For more information and to donate, check out the campaign information here.
