Honoring Lesbian Culture

This Lesbian Visibility Day, we honor our lesbian sisters’ courage, independence, and many contributions to public life. When women like Pauli Murray and Storme DeLarverie took strong, early stands for rights and freedoms that have moved society closer to justice, they did so as part of a long tradition of trailblazing lesbians who pushed the boundaries of where women could go on our own, or what we were allowed to wear. That legacy continued with lesbian intellectual leadership of the modern women’s liberation movement. In spite of severe restrictions on women’s movement and activities in western society, and dangerous laws regard...

Statement on Malicious Rumors

Q: Why are you writing this? A: WoLF has been subjected to a 5-month campaign of digital hate-stalking by one person. The uniform advice on stalkers is to cut off all contact with the stalker and deny them any access to you. What stalkers feed on is engagement. We know this. But WoLF's stalker is continuing to spread lies about us, and her lies have encouraged others to create increasingly bizarre conspiracy theories about WoLF. We don't know what to do but address at least some of her claims directly.   We are also aware that research shows how repeating a falsehood, even in the service of debunking it, serves to reinforce the veracity of the ...

Women’s March on Washington

WoLF will have a presence of radical feminists and allies at the Women's March on Washington. We feel it is crucial at this moment for women to unite as a class against rape, misogyny, and sexist federal policy. The president-elect has shown himself to be a degrader, exploiter, and all around hater of women. This cannot stand. On the day of his inauguration, women will unite together in protest against Trump and institutionalized male supremacy!

Confessed rapist invited to speak on-stage at DC Women’s March

On Saturday, millions of women of all races and ethnicities, and our male allies, came out in force to demand that women receive the respect and dignity that we deserve. Numerous members of the Women’s Liberation Front (WoLF) attended the march in Washington, DC and in their own cities. The march was a tremendous success as a catalyst for an ongoing international women's movement. However, WoLF is gravely concerned that a confessed rapist was invited to the stage. Cherno Biko wrote an article on Medium last year, admitting to raping a black female-to-transgender person, with the express purpose of impregnating the alleged victim without ...
