Donate online

Do you or people you know have some extra change for change? It's a bad joke but for a good cause: we now have a way for anyone to donate any amount to Feminist Action Project through PayPal. To check it out, go to Donate online under Pages in the left frame, or follow this link:


Every contribution goes straight toward event supplies, registration funding, and especially bringing Loretta Ross to come speak and inspire us.

If you would like to donate through the mail or in person, please feel free to make out a check or money order to UT-Austin with Gender and Sexuality Center in the notes. The canceled check serves as a tax-deductible donation receipt! Please e-mail us or call at 512-232-1831 if you have any questions.

Registration is open!

The time has come! Registration has begun for the big event. You can use the link to "Registration" in the left frame under Pages, or follow this link to the form and PayPal button:


A registration fee affords you the following pleasures:
  • Participation in both days of the conference
  • Admission to the Vagina Monologues performance on the night of Friday, April 1 (for the first 50 registrants)
  • Breakfast, lunch, and snacks on Saturday, April 2
  • The stylings of Loretta Ross, Marianne Kirby, and many other distinguished speakers and panelists

This is a self-supporting feminist event, but we don't want financial hardship to prevent anyone from attending. The registration fee is a sliding scale from $10-$20 dollars. If all you can pay is $10, we completely understand are are glad you'll be able to join us. If you are able to pay the $20 (or more), it will help others attend who would otherwise not be able to, which will in turn make the event and our community stronger.

We can't wait to get everything started! As always, please contact us with any questions, and we look forward to working with you in April.

Quick link!

In Clutch, an online magazine for "young, contemporary women of color," Dan Tres Omi writes about feminism from a black male perspective in his January 24th article, "Black Male Feminist: What Feminism Means to Me." Check it out:
Being a black male feminist does not imply that I have arrived. I am a work in progress and I don’t have all the answers. I am thankful that I have several sister warrior friends in my corner. They are supportive, loving, strong, and intelligent. I have come to realize that in the words of the wonderful Dr. bell hooks, feminism is for everybody.
Check it out! What do you think?
