The Mission Statement

We stand in the gap.

We experienced the ERA and Stonewall and 70s black radicalism from high chairs and sandboxes.

We wondered why Blair had romances and Tootie had roller skates.

We feel too damn old for Girls, but we vaguely remember when Maude first came on TV.

The second wave forgot many of our mothers. The third wave struggles to remember us.

We stand in the gap between Boomer and Millennial feminisms that often fail to reflect the voices of women of color. But we don’t stand alone. Because we seek to create solidarity with other marginalized peoples under the banner of “coalition politics.”

In this space, we mind the gap…or rather the intersection. We talk about race, feminism, and other social-justice issues with sidelines of silliness, just because.
