"The task of an activist is not to navigate systems of oppressive power with as much personal integrity as possible; it is to dismantle those systems.” Lierre Keith, co-author of the book Deep Green Resistance

Radical Feminist Activists Meetup Group (RadFem) was founded in 2011, has hosted over 350 Meetups of all sorts and had garnered almost 600 supporters. Sadly, our previous organizer shut it down on New Year's Day 2016 (despite a stated intention not to do so), thereby wiping out all files, studies, reports, photos, discussions, e-lists, event history... and the entire institutional memory of the group. This represented the collective product of many feminists over a number of years.

This valuable resource was created for the benefit of, and was open to, the entire Feminist community, members and non-members alike. It will take some time, but we will rebuild both the site and the collective inclusive spirit of the group. Silence in not an option.

Please be a feminist or open to feminism if you join. There are plenty of other groups to join if you are neither. Beyond that, we welcome feminists of all stripes, colors, creeds, and gender identities who are committed to challenging, confronting, and ultimately dismantling Patriarchy. Together we hope to forge a path to sexual equality and gender justice for all, not just by talking among ourselves, but by speaking out, writing, marching, demonstrating, protesting and actively projecting a loud and fierce voice in opposition to Rape Culture and the War on Women.

This is a member-led and self-directed group. Please share not only events of interest, but ideas for actions we can take individually or collectively. Post to the message board, upload files to share, or suggest a Meetup. Courtesy and respect are expected and extended. Your private contact information is always protected by Meetup and shared with no one. 

This group subscribes and adheres to the elements of Security Culture as enumerated by Deep Green Resistance here: SECURITY CULTURE. Please do not use this site for any commercial purposes, but feel free to initiate discussions and post events of interest.

2016 Post-election note: RESISTANCE... NOW MORE THAN EVER

Male supremacy must end. Oppression and violence are not natural or inevitable. Neither is patriarchy or any collection of interlocking/intersecting systems of oppression. Radical Feminism, in the truest sense of the word 'Radical', is about going to the root of the systems of oppression that we all participate in and perpetuate, creating change from the ground up and making the world a better, more equitable, non-oppressive place.

We believe change is possible and above all necessary. Radical Feminist Activists is a place for Radical Feminists to gather, consciousness raise, get creative, share stories, and engage in activism in New York City and beyond. Please join us in this struggle.

Issues we care about (not exhaustive):
- Domestic violence
- Rape and sexual abuse
- Human trafficking
- Childhood sexual abuse (CSA)
- Female Genital Mutilation (FGM)
- Racism
- The wage gap and the glass ceiling
- Sexual harassment and stalking
- Homophobia, transphobia, and violence against lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and sex/gender nonconforming people
- Femicide 
- Pornography
- Prostituted women
- Sex/gender roles and stereotypes
- Sexism in media and advertising
- Global solidarity
- Intersection w/ race and class oppression
- Islamophobia and antiSemitism
- History of feminist theory and what sets Radical Feminism apart
- Mass incarceration
- Migration

Join us to plan activist events and projects; get together to discuss feminism, current events, and anything else of interest; plan creative projects like advertising campaigns, videos, stories, spoken word and poetry; and start activist actions on issues that matter to us all!

Peace, Justice and Freedom...
