Across the world—on Facebook and Twitter, through our blogs and podcasts, in classrooms, and in our very own lending library—thousands of people engage with Bitch Media. Providing and encouraging a feminist response to pop culture is important work that we intend to carry on for years to come.
The very real danger, however, is that we might not be able to continue to provide a feminist response to pop culture with a printed magazine. So we’re asking you today, and we’ll continue to ask over the next week and a half: Do you want Bitch Media to continue publishing a quarterly magazine?
Think about future generations of Bitch readers!
You’ve heard us talk about rising printing and mailing costs, and most recently, the liquidation of Borders bookstores across the country has dealt a huge blow to the newsstand and publishing industries, and independent magazines like Bitch don’t escape the impact.
We need 1,500 subscriptions ordered by August 8. This campaign is not about staving off a short-term crisis; it’s about the future of Bitch’s oldest, and to many, dearest program. If you want Bitch to stay in print, subscribe, renew, give a gift, or become a sustainer today. We need to hear from you.
