A new project to amplify feminist voices outside the major media centres. The name might sound US-centric, and it definitely is US-origin, but the scope of Flyover Feminism’s mission is worldwide.
Flyover Feminism is about supporting local politicians who are getting it right and shaming the good goddamn out of the ones that are putting in overtime getting it wrong. It is about how, exactly, activists without media clout or attention bring immediacy and passion to a fight that will largely be ignored no matter the outcome. We want to teach the next generation of geographically-marginalized activists how to organize, learn new ideas from new activists, and document the stories of people who have been doing activism for decades in obscurity. We want to want to record the past, and nurture the future.
We don’t want to simply start conversations; we want to proactively connect activists from all over the globe and unite them in their struggle to affect a better future.
Flyover Feminism was founded by Garland Grey (Tiger Beatdown etc), Jessica Luther (scATX) and Melissa McEwan (Shakesville) – and they are looking for contributors and editorial partners who don’t look like them and who don’t share their experiences to hoist their teaspoons alongside them.
