#WeNeedDiversePublishers

 

This month, we’re introducing our new executive director Jamia Wilson and her bold vision for the future of Feminist Press.

Dear Friend,

In the face of heightened misogyny and racism at top levels of government, it's time to recognize and invest in bold and diverse leaders—especially women of color who have built and sustained movements toward a more just future.

And it’s time for more women of color to direct social change organizations, because even the nonprofit sector suffers from persistent gender and racial disparities. Leadership at U.S. nonprofits remains overwhelmingly white. Women are underrepresented in leadership roles and face a chronic pay gap.

It matters to us that our new executive director and publisher, Jamia Wilson, is committed to uplifting a diverse community of readers, writers, and thought leaders.

Jamia is the first woman of color to lead the Feminist Press. She joins us at a time when black women are breaking new ground in the top ranks of publishing, including Lisa Lucas, executive director of the National Book Foundation, and Vanessa Kingori, publishing director of British Vogue. But there’s still more work to do and more glass ceilings to be shattered.

That’s why we need your support as we transform the future of publishing into one that represents the full spectrum of our readers and our community. We're proud to serve as a springboard for new feminist publishing professionals through our internship and educational programs.

Help us declare FEMINISM the word—and the movement—of 2018, 2019, 2020, and beyond!

In honor of our 47th anniversary, give $47, $470, $1047, or any amount to help us continue to uplift the next generation of feminist movers and shakers.

Yours in joy and solidarity,

The Feminist Press Team
Jamia, Suki, Lucia, Alyea, Hannah, Lauren, Jisu, Sophia, and Drew
