Unapologetic progressive. Fearless activist. Plucky liberal.

About Molly

I used to co-blog at Progressive Blogic and established Feminist Forte in July 2011. Despite the new name, not everything posted will be related to feminism, although I do process everything through a feminist lens. I’m a proud Purdue University graduate with a degree in English literature and minors in Spanish and women’s studies. I’ve been a feminist since 2002 and a political activist since 2004. I’m especially interested in reproductive justice and gay rights. I’m a summer organizer with Organizing for America and I’m fired up and ready to re-elect President Obama in 2012!

    We are looking forward to your new posts.

    • Thank you, Ed! I appreciate your support. Your family has been in my thoughts and prayers the last few weeks.

  2. Hi Molly,
    My name is Alex and I am a Communications Manager at Barnard College. I am reaching out to you today with an idea for your blog. Being perfect and powerful, being a feminist: these are among the most popular topics of conversation among today’s young women. Barnard College’s new podcast series, Dare to Use the F-Word, tells the story of today’s feminists through the ideas, art, and activism that define them. Barnard President Debora Spar, in her new book Wonder Women: Sex, Power & the Quest for Perfection, explains that while most women today struggle with the idea of perfection, they also struggle with the concept of feminism itself. Are the two connected? Read President Spar’s thoughts in this exclusive post: https://barnard.edu/news/web-exclusive-president-spar.

    As a communications manager at Barnard, I want to continue these important conversations among feminist thought-leaders like you. I ask you to republish and share this post on your blog. Pose these questions to your audience; they may dare others to join us and use the f-word.

    Kindly,
    Alex

    • Hi, Alex,

      From what I have gleaned online, Debora Spar seems to be aligned with mainstream, white, NYC-centric feminism. In other words, her feminism isn’t my feminism, so I’m going to decline.
