What was your click moment?

By Chloe Angyal

Feministing, and specifically Courtney E. Martin, are calling for submissions on "click" moments, the moments in which we become feminists. She's writing a book about feminism, which she hopes will be "a historic document, a totally entertaining gift, a course adoption text, and, most of all, a collection that makes young women who already identify with the movement feel seen and heard, and welcomes all those just growing into the still unfolding story of feminism."

Martin defines "click" moments as,
"those split-second experiences that led them to join the women's movement. Today's young feminists come to the movement--which is looking less like a protest march and more like a blog--in myriad, often piecemeal, ways. It can be as simple as reading a book or attending an event or talking with one person or witnessing a horrendous act of sexism. "

Send your "click" story to clickmoment@gmail.com, and post it here too!
