About us

Feministeerium is an independent feminist media outlet in Estonia. We publish weekly online articles on our blog, comment and share news on our Facebook page, tweet occasionally, and collect sexist ads on Instagram. We are interested in an intersectional perspective and have a soft spot for queer issues. We like different feminist voices to be heard and offer a platform for feminist writers in Estonia and abroad, representing a variety of perspectives. Whenever we have the opportunity, we arrange feminist creative writing workshops. We welcome both visual and written contributions (written ones should be in Estonian, Russian or English). The editorial staff reserves the right to choose which contributions are to be published. If you are interested, please contact us at our contact page.
