Guerrilla Feminist Digital Activist Resource Center: What It Is & Why It's Needed

A few weeks ago, I started working on a project for the nonprofit I created.

But as time went on, I began thinking about just HOW MUCH SHIT is on the internet. How do you know if what you're reading is legit? How do you know what you're reading is from an inclusive space or person? Well, GF DARC takes the guesswork out of that!

Blogging While Feminist

As a feminist "lady blogger", I've come to realize how much shit we have to put up with--and it doesn't appear to be ending any time soon.  I recently read an article about a rower (and blogger) named Jenn Gibbons.
