Feministeerium serves its country and its people. Our ambition is to be a moral beacon as well as a gracious feminist space.

Feministeerium is an independent feminist publication that is active offline as well. We work to make Estonia a post-patriarchal society and to give the feminist community a room of its own. We love facts, nuance, passion, experiments, strong arguments and the rainbow (in Estonia also known as pink slime). We twerk work hard and play hard. 

We have great guest authors, translators and illustrators (a full 85 of them in 2020), and we always look forward to new contributions. We are particularly interested in all things related to current events, but welcome all texts and visual work that opens up a feminist perspective, be it on politics, culture, or all things feminine. We strive to offer a plurality of well-argued opinions, not just a single narrow view (true feminism). You can write in Estonian, Russian, or English. Our editorial board reserves the right to choose which contributions are published. If you have any questions, suggestions, tips or other ideas for contributions, let us know.
