It's 2016, and feminism is still a very misunderstood movement. (No, feminism isn't based on the hatred of men.)

It's odd that such a perception exists, because the simple truth is, feminism fights for equality for all and comes with the attached subconscious idea that change is indeed possible. Men (who often hold most of the societal and governmental power) are not only capable of changing themselves, but also making change in the world. If indeed feminism was founded on the hatred of men, it would be much more of an anarchistic movement, as it would need to go around the male-dominated governments to bring about the changes it wishes to see.

Feminism (at least the real kind) fights for the lives and liberties of us all. It believes that we all deserve a shot in this life and that neither our skin color, class, address, ability, gender, nor our genitals should dictate our access to a free, safe, and happy life. Feminism is people rallying in Washington for a woman's right to choice. Feminism is consciously using social media and supporting victims of cyber attacks and harassment. Feminism is questioning why men beat women, not why women stay. Feminism is knowing when to talk, and when to listen. It's all of these things and so much more, but it would be very little without the powerful media outlets that give this movement a face and a voice.

Without publications like the ones below, feminism would be only be relegated to IRL conversations, which seem to happen less and less these days. Feminism has evolved to become the bigger, faster, and stronger movement that it is today, one that brings together not just white women, but people of all identities near and far. And Feminism has online publications like the following to thank for continuing the fight that was started so many years ago.

1. Femsplain

Femsplain gives female-identifying folks a safe, inclusive platform on which they can tell their stories related to a monthly theme. Plus, the editors are super cool (for lack of a better phrase)!

2. Ravishly

Ravishly elevates diverse voices and creates a community where people can come together. When you read Ravishly, you can be laughing one minute and crying the next.

3. Bitch

Intersectionality is the name of the game at Bitch, and they do it so well. Plus, the name itself is beyond compare!

4. Everyday Feminism

Come to Everyday Feminism if you're an activist or if you're trying to become a more engaged, informed feminist. Their articles unpack even the most complex concepts in helpful, 101 style pieces.

5. NYLON

This magazine defines the "It Factor," empowering all types of style and beauty within the pages of their physical print articles and in everything that they publish online.

6. Rookie

Led by Tavi Gevinson, Rookie aims to talk TO teenage girls, and not AT them, because teenage girls are more brilliant than the world will ever give them credit for.

7. Feministing

Feministing has been delivering hard-hitting, thoughtful, inclusive, and intersectional feminist news for over 12 years.

8. Bustle

9. The Mary Sue
