Women’s rights movement still relevant
Maral Margossian argues that the women’s rights movement still has work to do in accomplishing its goals worldwide.

The radical origins of International Women’s Day
Mike Tudoreanu traces the radical history of International Women’s Day, exploring its role in workers’ movements and the Russian Revolution.

Feminist economics can promote gender equity
Jillian Correira argues that recognizing and legitimizing unpaid labor, much of which is done by women, will help not only women, but also society at large.

If you believe in equality, you’re a feminist (whether you like it or not)
According to the dictionary, feminism is the belief in human equality, regardless of gender. Columnist Zac Bears argues that stating “I am not a feminist” really indicates a belief in the superiority of men over women, and that America won’t see gender equity until we change that cultural norm.

Men should reject sexist media
Julian del Prado argues that one way that men can help feminists is by refusing to consume sexist media, and using the power of consumer demand to affect change.
