Front and Center puts front and center the voices of Black women affected most by the often-abstract policies currently debated at the national level. It highlights Springboard to Opportunities’ Magnolia Mother’s Trust program, which gives $1,000 per month for 12 months to 100 families headed by Black women living in federally subsidized housing. The first-person accounts in this series are available for reprint.

In every issue of Ms., we track our progress with numbers, catalogue can’t-miss quotes from feminist voices and keep tabs on the feminist movement’s milestones. We’re Keeping Score online, too, in this biweekly round-up.

Gender and women’s studies librarian Karla Strand—our resident Feminist Know-It-All—carves out space in her column with Ms. to explore feminist knowledge creation, access, use and preservation; innovative projects and initiatives focused on information, literacies and libraries; and, of course, talk about all of the books.

Today in Feminist History uncovers the major milestones and minor advancements that shaped women’s history in the U.S. It’s made possible by the encyclopedic knowledge of our staff historian and archivist, David Dismore.

Ms. Muse is a discovery place for riotous, righteous and resonant feminist poetry that nourishes and gives voice to a rising tide of female resistance. Each month, Ms. digital columnist Chivas Sandage will hold space for a feminist poet—talking with them about their work and publishing previously unreleased pieces.

The Women’s Marches re-invigorated the feminist movement, and in the age of resistance, the Ms. community continues to march on. Our Ms. Marches series spotlights their activism.

To pay tribute to five decades of our reporting, rebelling and truth-telling, Ms. is launching a new series: From the Vault. Tune in every #ThrowbackThursday for some of our favorite feminist classics from the last 50 years of Ms.

It’s time to talk about women’s economics with attitude. It’s time to laugh at what is often absurd and call out what is dangerous. Women Unscrewing Screwnomics will bring you news of hopeful and practical changes and celebrate an economy waged as life—not as war. 

Women aren’t just victims of conflict—they’re leaders, and often unsung heroes. Seeking Peace brings you their stories, amplifying the voices from each episode of the titular podcast produced by Georgetown’s Institute for Women, Peace & Security.

Brought to you by Cynthia Richie Terrell, founder and executive director of RepresentWomen, Weekend Reading on Women’s Representation is a compilation of stories about women’s representation in politics, on boards, in sports and entertainment, in judicial offices and in the private sector in the U.S. and around the world—with a little gardening and goodwill mixed in for refreshment!
