Bitch Needs Your Help

September 16th, 2008     by Stacey May Fowles     Comments

I felt like it was really important to post this video for a number of reasons. The obvious one is that the wonderful Bitch Magazine is more than worth saving - in fact, Bitch is not only the reason that magazines like Shameless exist, but it’s also the reason that feminists like me exist. The first issue of Bitch was published in January 1996 and the mag has acted as “a feminist response to pop culture” ever since.

We had the rare pleasure of meeting the lovely ladies of Bitch Mag last year at WAM and it really solidified for us how vital they are and how vital Bitch is as a feminist publication. We love them and we need them to carry on, so I encourage everyone with a dollar to spare to help them out. They need to raise $40,000 before October 15th or the current issue may be their last.

The other reason I wanted to post this video was because it gives you, the reader, a really good idea how hard it can be for independent feminist mags out in the world, and how much we rely on reader support to get things made and out the door (something that Megan, our editor, will be writing more about shortly.)

Bottom line: if you value having independent, alternative media, please support the mags you love as much as you can. We need (and love) you!

To make sure that this is not Bitch’s final issue, click here and help them out.
