OUR STORY

Women's Wire Weekly launched in July 2016 as a resource to help young professionals in Washington, DC engage in feminist advocacy. We see ourselves as connectors and curators: we elevate lesser-known stories and circulate information about exciting events and employment opportunities related to feminist activism. 

In each newsletter, we aim to inform, inspire, and energize our readers to take action on the feminist causes about which they’re most passionate. We value inclusivity and diversity in all forms and work hard to shine a light on injustices, particularly those experienced by marginalized communities.

 We hope you’ll subscribe to our weekly newsletter and join our thriving community of feminists across DC!

She enjoys spending time with friends, running, reading, tending to her succulent garden, and, if she's being honest and real, Instagramming.
