Introducing: 4th Wave Feminism
A new publication for the next generation of feminist writers.
About 4th Wave Feminism
4th Wave Feminism (4W) is a publication that is here to give a platform to today’s feminists who are stepping outside of the mainstream.
We are not afraid to challenge the status quo, including the male-centered “feminist” narrative of the third wave.
We focus primarily on gender, sexuality, and male violence, but are open to pieces covering a range of feminist topics from female writers and journalists.
We take a radical feminist lens, which means we do not support:
- The buying and selling of women and girls, our bodies, or our objectification for male pleasure
- The glorification of violent male sexuality, even if done “consensually”
- The idea that “woman” is defined by sex stereotypes or feelings — a woman is an adult human female
- The use of slurs like “queer” or “cis” to describe women, especially lesbians
You may want to take a look through some of our articles to be sure that you align with our politics before submitting.
Submitting to 4W
If you would like to be added as a writer to 4W, please email M. K. at: firstname.lastname@example.org with your Medium username, and a couple of sample pieces you feel would fit our topics.
All pieces should be thoroughly edited and proof-read and edited prior to submitting. Be sure to cite your sources as well as any media you use.
If your piece is a good fit but needs some editing work, we may require changes prior to publishing.
We only accept submissions from female writers, and pseudonyms for authors will only be accepted in rare circumstances.
Once you are added as writer, please submit your unpublished drafts. Follow these instructions if you’ve never done that before:
