So I just received my first box, & I’m all at once intrigued, curious, a bit confused & slightly disappointed. I love the concept of this box- a feminist book & 2-3 items from female/ feminist indie brands.

It's less about the products and more about the connections to one another through our feminist values, building on tried-and-true practices used throughout feminist history and translating them to the modern, online world. We cultivate our community through our discussion group, monthly live chats, and other online events. I noticed you're not a...
