In Case You Missed It. . .

Last Saturday the Washington Post published a rundown of the feminist agenda—or at least who the Post thinks are “leading feminists”—of what they want to accomplish in 2015. All I can say is—if this is what “leading feminists” have on their mind, their movement is about over. Some samples:

Leigh Stein, 30 | BinderCon co-founder:

I would like to see less digital dualism, which perpetuates the fallacy that online harassment isn’t “real” harassment when in fact so many women writers face threats just for doing their job -writing- on the Internet.

Elizabeth Nyamayaro, 40 | Senior Advisor to Executive Director of UN Women, heads HeForShe campaign:

We have an amazing opportunity with @heforshe for one half of humanity (men) to join in solidarity with the other half of humanity (women) in creating a shared vision of gender equality that benefits all of humanity.

Mia McKenzie, 38 | Award-Winning Writer, Black Girl Dangerous founder:

I want to see queer and trans people of color with radical social and political analyses dominate independent media by creating and growing our own platforms, so we can centralize and control our own narratives.

Brianna Spacekat Wu, 35 | Giant Spacekat head of development:

In 2015, I want fewer speeches about supporting women in games and more concrete action – it’s time to open up gamedev to the rest of us.

There’s lots more, but you get the idea.
