[edit] Welcome to Feminist Wiki

Feminist Wiki was created as a refuge from the white male dominated internet, where the feminist movement and its history will not be distorted, erased, or maligned.

When feminists have attempted to defend their movement and their history on male run sites such as Wikipedia (founded by pornographer Jimmy Wales) or RationalWiki (which is not so rational when it comes to women’s issues) we have been blocked, harassed, or run off by trolls.

Also, far too many "feminist" sites are actually owned and run by men, and promote male interests at the expense of women. These sites include Jezebel, which is owned by Nick Denton of Gawker Media; Bustle, which was founded by Bryan Goldberg; The Frisky, run by CEO Stephen Blackwell; and xojane, owned by male-dominated Time Warner [[1]][[2]]

In the spirit of Meghan Murphy's Feminist Current [[3]], we want Feminist Wiki to be a place where the interests and needs of women are prioritized.

We (unlike male-controlled sites such as Wikipedia and "Rational" Wiki) are honest, and do not pretend to have a Neutral Point of View.

Feminist Wiki was created to serve as an alternative to the white male definition of reality offered by most online sites.

We are not a "gender equality" site. We are a Women's Liberation site. We are devoted to the liberation of all women from male violence, domination, and control. We welcome all contributors to the site who support that agenda.

We do not support the abuse or exploitation of women in any form. For this reason, we support neither the sex trade nor the surrogacy trade.

We do not support the erasure of women as a sex class, or the denial of female biology as an axis of oppression. We are not afraid to refer to issues pertaining to female biology - such as abortion, birth control, pregnancy, and childbirth - as Women's Issues.
