nist.tv: Feminism's YouTube


Do you want a place where you can have a feminist dialog in a comments section without constant interruption by coarse YouTube lurkers? A go-to for all your feminist video needs? Where you can submit or recommend feminist videos yourself? If your answer is "Eff yes," feast your browsers on nist.tv. Founded by Anne Jonas, who spent almost a year building and curating the site's content, it's intended to be a kind of archive as well as an open commons video collaboration. You can browse content by category, popularity, or by searching for video authors (and then subscribe to certain ones, like Bitch Media, via RSS!)

This is a great resource for feminist blogs, scholars, web browsers. I've already found some great finds, including... 

A "Queer Carrie" remix of Sex and the City....

Excerpts from a 2008 lecture "Abolition Democracy and Global Politics" by Angela Davis (Q. Is the full lecture on nist.tv as well? A. YES!)...

Angela Davis: Civil Rights, Prisons & Justice from BCRW Videos

Activist Mia Mingus on integrating disability awareness into reproductive justice and intersectionality....

And one of many videos courtesy of Reel Grrls: Ketchup vs. Mustard, a short film that has some heavy commentary on consumerism, the sports industrial complex, and condiment dance parties...

Ketchup Vs. Mustard from ReelGrrls Workshops

...and many more (seriously, you could spend hours in the "Lectures" section alone). I'm so excited about this great resource, and look forward to its growth! The creators are still looking for feedback too, so start checking it out, adding your video, and sharing feminist media!

For someone who is always looking to kill a little time via Internet videos, this is a feminist dream come true. AWESOME!

Yay Anne! What a fantastic site, and even more reason to stop suffering the idiotic comments toward anything even vaguely feminist on EwwTube.

It's paradise (and full of Valkyries)! Congratulations to Anne on this extraordinary accomplishment, and to Bitch Media for recognizing the importance of this project. I can't wait to watch nist.tv grow!
