Graphic Design & Web Developing Interns Needed!

thenewwomensmovement:

Muchachafanzine and I are working on our next big project! We’ve collaborated on various activist events since we met during our first year of grad school in the Women’s Studies Department at Texas Woman’s University, our most widely known event being Denton’s Femme Fest, an art activist benefit concert and art show aimed at celebrating local women and feminist artists.

We both finish our Master’s degree in December, and we are excited to put our Women’s Studies education to use in a meaningful way. We both have activist hearts and are passionate about bridging the gap between the academy and the community, and with that in mind, we’ve decided to forgo doctoral programs to open a non-profit feminist bookstore and community center where it is desperately needed—the South. (North Texas, specifically.)

And we need your help to make this dream a reality!

At this point, we need a graphic and web-designing intern or two to help us design a logo and a website.

Once we get the business plan solidified and our press release completed, we’re going to create a Go Fund Me account in order to raise the funds to get the Southern Woman’s Bookstore off the ground, so our next step will be fundraising and mass promotion.

If you’re interested in helping out, let us know!

And for the rest of you, stay tuned for more details to come! :)

I have our logo idea ready - I just need an amazing feminist graphic designer to make it come to life! Anyone interested in creating the logo for the Southern Woman’s Bookstore?

Seeking Funding and Grant-Writing Interns

A non-profit feminist bookstore - the Southern Woman’s Bookstore - is in the developmental stages and is looking for a few interns interested in working on our Funding Team. 

This feminist bookstore and community center will only become a reality if we get the necessary funding to make it happen. Help us create a space for Southern feminists, womanists, women of color, queers, indigenous, and other marginalized people to learn and grow (and be recognized for their various artistic contributions to society!)

If you’re interested in applying, let us know!

Moreover, data suggests that states with weaker gun laws regarding domestic abusers see more murders among intimate partners involving guns. Three federal bills aimed at addressing these problems—opposed by the National Rifle Association—are currently stalled in Congress. But a handful of states have passed tougher laws this year, in part due to lobbying by groups such as Everytown for Gun Safety, and the issue may now be rising on Washington’s radar: On Wednesday, the Senate Judiciary Committee holds its first-ever hearing on domestic violence and guns.

Abortion isn’t a product.  It’s a service.  It’s a medical procedure.  We don’t promote heart surgery or general emergency medical care by showing people every detail.
But there have been people who did take pictures or record themselves having an abortion!
This one person took pictures of their abortion.
And this person recorded their abortion.
Interesting that none of it actually matches up with the anti-choice propaganda that you desperately spew.
