Kate Harding is a longtime feminist blogger and the author of Asking For It: The Alarming Rise of Rape Culture—and What We Can Do About It, forthcoming from Da Capo Press in September 2015. Harding’s column, “All the Rage,” is her irreverent and smart take on the most infuriating and/or fascinating news of the day. She currently lives in Chicago.
Before you go, we hope you’ll consider supporting DAME’s journalism.
Today, just tiny number of corporations and billionaire owners are in control the news we watch and read. That influence shapes our culture and our understanding of the world. But at DAME, we serve as a counterbalance by doing things differently. We’re reader funded, which means our only agenda is to serve our readers. No both sides, no false equivalencies, no billionaire interests. Just our mission to publish the information and reporting that help you navigate the most complex issues we face.
But to keep publishing, stay independent and paywall free for all, we urgently need more support. During our Spring Membership drive, we hope you’ll join the community helping to build a more equitable media landscape with a monthly membership of just $5.00 per month or one-time gift in any amount.
