Job Description:

Executive Director

Everyday Feminism is seeking a full-time Executive Director who can lead the staff in developing our online magazine to better support our readership during the time of Trump in and in a financially and emotionally sustainable way.

Since we are a virtual organization, the Publisher works from home and attends meetings via telephone and videoconferencing. This full-time exempt staff position is compensated with a $70,000-75,000  annual salary, commensurate with experience, and a competitive benefits package. As we become more financially sustainable, we are committed to raising this and other salaries at Everyday Feminism.

About Everyday Feminism

Founded in 2012, Everyday Feminism has quickly grown from a small bootstrapped start-up into one of the most popular online independent feminist media sites in the world, reaching millions of readers from over 140 countries per month.

Dedicated to helping people apply intersectional feminism to their everyday lives, Everyday Feminism educates on and spreads anti-oppression analysis and practical strategies. With the belief that personal and social liberation are interdependent, our editorial approach is grounded in starting our everyday activist work from a place of self-compassion and sense of shared humanity.

And now with the Trump administration in full swing, we’ve realized that Everyday Feminism needs to become more strategic in what and how we cover different social justice issues in order to better support everyday people in becoming more socially conscious and resisting Trumplandia in emotionally sustainable ways.

As part of living our values, Everyday Feminism also strives to operate as a self-governing organization. Our organizational culture aims to balance autonomy and collaboration in service of our purpose. We also acknowledge that it’s difficult to self-govern when we’ve been policed and punished into conformity and hierarchy of power over. In order to address that, we also have a commitment to and invest in supporting the staff to do the inner work needed to become better equipped to self-govern as individuals and as a team.

We are experimenting with new ways for independent media and activism to work together, new ways to financially sustain this innovative work, and new ways of working together. As the world is calling on us to take on this new challenge, we’re excited to grow our dream team. So please apply soon if you’d like to join us!
