Hello there, dear Internet reader. I can only assume that, since you're here (thanks!) that you value Bitch Media and the work that we do providing a feminist response to pop culture. Excellent! That's what I want to talk to you about.
See, Bitch began as a print magazine, and even though now we're oh-so-much more than that (which as web editor I am psyched about, let me tell you), the magazine is still a big part of what we do here. It's important, and not just because print media is struggling and that sucks and we should all pitch in and do our part. It's also important because, as people who care about providing a feminist response to pop culture (that's you! and me too!), we want to reach out to as many people in as many ways as possible. Lots of people encounter Bitch Media through the magazine—in fact, maybe that's how you discovered us. We want to keep that print train rolling and we want you to help. (Also, have you seen the print magazine? It's gorgeous and super interesting and will make you look smart if you read it in public.)
So this is where the real talk comes in. Because I'm willing to bet that many of you reading this right now, online, do not subscribe to the magazine. We'd like to change that. You see, if we don't get more supporters and subscribers, we might not be able to print Bitch anymore. Seriously.
It's time to put your money where your Bitch is, online reader. If you want to Keep Bitch in Print, if you want to support the organization that brings you all the feminist response to pop culture that's fit to print—online and off—subscribe, renew, or become a sustainer now. Thank you!
