Women’s March: Making Our Voices Heard #NastyWomenUnite

By Issuu OpsJanuary 18, 2017Last updated on February 2, 2018Editorial


This weekend, the United States’ new president will be sworn in, and the fight for women’s rights and intersectional feminism is going to get tougher. If you want to join in, check out the upcoming Women’s March on Washington D.C. The march is a message to the new government that “women’s rights are human rights” and that our country is made greater by supporting diverse and vibrant communities — not fear or bigotry.

You can register for the Women’s March and read all the important FAQs here, or show your support by donating to the cause. If you’re posting on social media, use the hashtags #WomensMarch, #WhyIMarch and #IMarchFor.

To do our small part in support of #nastywomen everywhere, issuu wants to take a moment to highlight our publishers that are choosing to actively fight for women’s rights.


The Rise of Feminist Magazines

Post-election, Harper’s Bazaar did a great piece for disappointed Hillary supporters highlighting the rise of digital feminist magazines. Writer Lauren Alexis Fisher wrote, “Outspoken feminist voices are needed now — perhaps more than ever — and issuu has its dose of female writers stepping up to the plate.” We couldn’t agree more, and we’re proud to be called home by some of these amazing publishers.

Harper’s Bazaar spotlighted a few of our favorite publications, but we took it a step further. The Feminist category on issuu is meant to surface a few more great publications we think deserve a look. This mix of magazines, literary journals, zines and more shows the depth of issuu’s diverse community of creative and powerful female voices. We’re excited to continue adding more publishers as we come across them.

March Together

In addition to being digital rockstars, a number of our publishers will be attending the march in D.C. and sister marches in cities around the country. We want to give these outstanding people a shout out. Keep an eye out for them if you plan on marching as well.
