Feministing Follow Friday: K-12 Feminists, Vol. I

Twitter, Feministing styleThis week Feministing got one of our favorite emails from a reader ever. Seventeen-year-old Alex from Orlando wrote us about all the backlash to her high school feminist club — and how excited she is for a future kicking the patriarchy’s butt. Inspired by her young fem ambition, here are campaigns and projects, all run by K-12 feminists, that you should know. 

  • Buhach Colony H.S. (@BCWomenStudies): Buhach Colony High School Women’s Studies Class. We BELIEVE we can help ratify the ERA! Join us in making history.

  • SPARK Movement (@SPARKsummit):  girl-fueled, intergenerational movement revealing & fighting sexualization of girls in the media. Tweets by @cryssavestheday & the SPARKteam

  • I Am Proud (@ProudCampaign): Diversity, Self-esteem, Realistic representations of girls in the media, Sisterhood, Self-empowerment: a campaign by girls & for girls

  • Rookie (@RookieMag): We are a website for teenage girls.

  • Young AZ Feminists (@YoungAzFeminist): Young Arizonans fighting to premote gender equality.

You all had a ton of young fem recs, so we’ll be back with more next week — leave suggestions (both campaigns and individual activists) in the comments! And of course remember to follow @feministing.
