    “I moved to Los Angeles in August 2010 in complete and utter fear that I would lose the feminist community I had created in New York City. Some people find support and understanding through their families and friends – I find it within the feminist community.
    And so, upon landing I did what any social media savvy, 20-something feminist would do and Googled: Feminist Los Angeles, Feminism LA, Los Angeles Women’s group and the likes, only to find Feminist Magazine.

    For those of you who don’t know, Feminist Magazine is a remarkable radio show on KPFK that continuously manages to have relevant news relating to the feminist and activist community around the word (Myra, Miranda and I recently had the pleasure of speaking on the show this past Wednesday. More on that here.)”
