A gigantic, Bitch-y thank you to everyone who supported us during our Bitch 500 subscription drive! With your help, we reached our goal of 500 new subscribers/renewals in two weeks! Hooray!
We are so lucky to have subscribers and readers like all of you, who stick by us even during these oh-so-tough economic times. Together, we are keeping independent feminist media alive and kicking (even if we've gotta collectively tighten a few purse strings in order to do it), because we realize that providing a feminist response to pop culture is of the utmost importance. After all, sexist media isn't going to critique itself now, is it?
As ever, our fundraising work is far from over, and if you missed out on joining the Bitch 500 (of if you did in fact join but now find yourself with tons of extra cash, you moneybags, you) there are still lots of ways to support what you love. Make a donation to Bitch Media, become a monthly sustainer by joining our B-Hive, host a Bitch house party, or just show your support by decorating your web page with one of these bitchin' badges!
Whatever you do, we appreciate it. Thank you again for your support! Your efforts are keeping Bitch Media going, so that we can keep the feminist responses coming.
A few years ago, I found a book-length literary magazine, Conditions:Five, amongst the discarded and donated books on the shelves in a local coffeehouse. I skimmed through it that day, just long enough to finish my cup of chai, before placing it back on the shelf. At the time, I had no idea that I'd held such a rich piece of history in my hands.
