hi all! i want to create a rad fem collective in nyc akin to ones prevalent in the 60s. this is a work in progress and i'm looking for anyone also interested in creating community offline.

purpose:

  • to unite radical feminists in the northeastern United States

  • to create a safe space where women can discuss the female experience freely without fear of being "canceled"

  • to advance the rights of women and lesbians

  • to advance political and philosophical discourse on the state and liberation of women

  • to promote and organize the liberation of women from oppressive structures

  • to promote the self-determination of women and lesbians

  • to create a professional and social network among likeminded women

  • to safeguard women's culture and history

things we'd do: build sisterhood, organize politically, contribute to feminist discourse, take care of one another.

reply if interested :)

Hi there! I live very close to NYC and would be very interested! Just joined Ovarit so there not much on my profile yet but I'd love to join a Zoom meeting if that's happening.

Absolutely fantastic idea and well thought out. I live in Ma. so, northeast, but too far for meetings. It is, now more than ever, essential to have IN PERSON groups. Real, effective, meaningful organizing cannot take place on line. Sounds very doable with a lot of interest. WE need this to happen regionally, as you say. Grassroot organizing to grow our women's rights movement and strengthen in numbers to confront the massive attacks happening now.

I live in Boston in the Fenway-Kenmore area. My university I am attending is women-centered but many of the pupils are liberal fems/tras or just ignorant altogether of radical feminist theory.

DM me if you want to chat.

I’m excited for your group! Maybe future replies should be to you over PM. I’m kinda worried how many women shared their locations in the comments where any deranged lurker could see it.

No kidding. Usually threads like these get nuked for that very reason.

This person registered last year and has made a total of 3 posts and 12 comments. Now that may or may not indicate anything, but it does need to be considered here for obvious reasons.

i understand your concern! i can verify my socials for any who are worried. i just haven't been on here as much, but i am pretty active on radfem twitter

Meaning no offense or personal attack there. At all. We just have to be careful. Especially nowadays, with what happened to Kiwi Farms and all.

I am interested. I am in Dutchess County so I can take the train very easily.

How will safety be tended?

great question. i'm brainstorming & i'm thinking the first meeting should be through zoom so we can get to know one another before meeting in person!

I am definitely interested. I live in NYC and there are so many womens groups that don’t prioritize women here. This would be a breath of fresh air.

yep, new york queer culture really inhibits groups even being able to prioritize women. inbox me your email, i'm gonna organize a zoom meeting for all interested soon!

Me. But I'm in western NJ, about an hour+ out from the city.

inbox me your email, i'm gonna organize a zoom meeting for all interested soon! & hopefully you can make it out a few times when things get off the ground!

We probably live very very close to each other, which is kind of exciting.

If anything happens closer to Albany-Saratoga-Lake George that's me in.
