Send us your “SHEER JOY” (if you haven’t already)!

Last year, we asked you to send us stories about the children who bring “SHEER JOY” to your lives. These stories would then be published in the Fall/Winter 2021 edition of The American Feminist. Not only did you step up and deliver, but we received so many entries, we ran out of pages to place them all!

With this in mind, we joyfully announce the newest chapter of this ongoing project: Sheer Joy Online

You can read our first online story, “Big Family, Big Laughs, Big Love,” by Joan Carey today!

We once again invite you to share your funniest, sweetest, tenderest, and most precious memories of the children in your lives. You can write about any child, not just daughters and sons. Aunts and uncles, grandparents, godparents, and friends are all encouraged to continue adding to this effort.

Please share your stories, photographs, and children’s drawings with us by emailing By submitting your story, you give us permission to print.

If your support has lapsed, please renew today, and we will get you the print edition of “Sheer Joy,” along with our special 50th Birthday issue of The American Feminist.

On a related note: Mother’s Day is almost here! Friendly reminder that a great way to show your appreciation for that special woman in your life — be she your mother, grandmother, godmother, aunt, or any woman like a mother to you — is with a gift subscription to The American Feminist.

Tribute gifts in memory of loved ones are also available.

(And with both high school and college graduations around the corner, consider gifting a subscription or some Covetable Stuff™ to a soon-to-be grad, too!)

Finally, telecommuting internship and volunteer applications are due, if you or someone you know wishes to apply. Email us today. You can learn more here.

Thank you so much in advance.

Because women — and girls — deserve better,
