It’s Our Anniversary

Feminists For Choice has been around for a full year. When we launched the site on June 1st of last year, we didn’t know in advance how fortuitous the timing would be. The site had been in the works for a few months. And then Dr. George Tiller was killed on May 31, 2009. Dr. Tiller’s death was certainly a wake up call for many of us. If there is one positive side to his murder, I guess you could say that it motivated many pro-choice supporters to become pro-choice activists.

We’ve had a lot of great posts on the site this year. The top 10 posts in terms of traffic are listed in the middle column. Some of my favorites have been about porn, pro-choice dudes, and clinic escorts. We also hosted choice chats with Gloria Feldt and Carol Adams. We’re hoping to bring you some more in the year to come.

Feminists For Choice has started a new feature called “Feminist Conversations.” We’re talking to pro-choice feminists around the country to find out what rock stars like yourself are doing with your feminist energies. Last week we featured Kamy Shaw, an utterly fabulous midwife from New Mexico who really just kicks major feminist booty. If you’d like to see yourself featured in the column, please send an e-mail to We’d love to find out what types of activism you’re up to in your neck of the woods.

Well, that’s basically the past year in a nutshell for ya. Many thanks to all of our writers for providing such excellent content for the site. And thanks to all our friends on Twitter for helping us grow. Happy Anniversary, and thanks for reading!


  1. First of all – thank you so much for all of the hard work that you do Serena! You are truly an inspiration!

    Second of all, I have enjoyed blogging for this group more than words could even begin to describe. It was the exact intellectual rejuvenation I needed to get me motivated to create change in my own life and community. It has been such a pleasure reading all of the great content produced by the other writers here, and I look forward to another great year with feminists for choice!!

  2. Ditto what AJ said, you rule Serena!! Yay for our first year!!
