A Voice
for
Human Equality

WHO WE ARE

We are a non-profit organization seeking to build a community that supports human equality. Feminist Pen is a place for sharing stories, spreading information, and effecting change. We have created a safe space for both genders and non-genders to share their stories, and we encourage anyone with a story to share to allow us to be the platform to help their voice reach more people.

At Feminist Pen, we are on a mission to inform people of the issues that are obstacles to human equality including social structures and legal systems. Our mission is to empower people with information and action steps to make a change in their communities and, collectively, in our world.

A NON-PROFIT. NEVER FOR PROFIT ORGANIZATION.

If you want to take action to build a more equal future for all humanity, join us on our mission!

We are all born “EQUAL” but
are we all treated so?

FIGHT DISCRIMINATION, SEXISM AND EXPLOITATION DICTATED BY GENDER PRIVILEGE

What is Feminism?

FEMINISM IS A RANGE OF SOCIAL MOVEMENTS, POLITICAL MOVEMENTS, AND IDEOLOGIES THAT AIM TO DEFINE, ESTABLISH, AND ACHIEVE THE POLITICAL, ECONOMIC, PERSONAL, AND SOCIAL EQUALITY OF THE SEXES. 

A feminist is someone who believes all human beings deserve to live freely and be treated as equals. At Feminist Pen, we believe that feminism is not just a gender equality issue but a human equality issue. We are working together to build a future in which all humans are able to freely live as EQUALS in all aspects of their lives regardless of gender, color, race, sexual orientation, ancestry, religion, sex, ethnicity, age, or disability. We are on a mission to fight discrimination, sexism, and exploitation dictated by gender privilege.

“Fem” in Feminism
does not make it all about women

WHO WE ARE

“Feminism is not simply a struggle to end male chauvinism or a movement to ensure that women have equal rights; It is a commitment to eradicating the ideology of domination that permeates our culture in various levels – Sex, Race, Class to name a few”
