20 years of feminist response to pop culture

Bitch Media is a nonprofit, independent, feminist media organization dedicated to providing and encouraging an engaged, thoughtful feminist response to mainstream media and popular culture.

We are best known for publishing the magazine Bitch: Feminist Response to Pop Culture, which started as a zine distributed out of the back of a station wagon in 1996. Today, in addition to the quarterly magazine, we publish daily online articles, and weekly podcasts. We house a community lending library at our HQ in Portland, Oregon, and work with students and educators through our Bitch on Campus program. 

Bitch seeks to be a fresh, revitalizing voice in contemporary feminism, one that welcomes complex arguments and refuses to ignore the contradictory and often uncomfortable realities of life in an unequivocally gendered world. We have a diverse audience, which keeps the dialogue and the movement we're a part of dynamic and strong. We are also uniquely situated to draw in young readers who are at a critical moment in their lives—a moment when they are discovering feminism and activism, finding answers to who they are, and questioning the definitions of gender, sexuality, power and agency prescribed by the mainstream media. Bitch not only plays a role in exploring these topics, it also provides a toolkit for engaging in analysis that promotes activism and impels social change. Bitch Media has a broad reach, with a community that has grown to over 6 million readers around the globe.

A propos de ce numéro

THE MONEY ISSUE

Summer 2016
HEIST, HEIST, BABY // DEBUGGING BIAS // FAIR-TRADE FEMINISM

This issue is all about the Benjamins: the cabbage, the loot, the cold, hard cash. In these pages we look at the places where feminism, pop culture, and money meet. Our authors investigate the insidious (and often ingenious) ways that our bodies are commodified, the everyday economics of feminine labor, and the big business of gentrification and cultural appropriation. But it’s not all bleak—we also celebrate resourcefulness, feminist entrepreneurship, and student activists who are shifting the tide of capitalism. You can take that to the bank!
