Hello there,

Are you regularly accused of being a misandrist? Do you bathe in a pool of male tears each night before bed? Is your bank account full to bursting with all the fucks you don't give about whether or not your feminist views are threatening the men in your life?

Welcome, friend!

My name is Clementine Ford and I'm a writer, speaker and professionally angry person living in Melbourne. I write about feminism, violence against women, misogyny, pop culture, parenting and mental health. 

I have been a columnist for FFX since 2012, but the media landscape is changing. I have recently had my column halved which means my wage has also been halved. The majority of media appearances I make on radio and TV are all unpaid. I have written two successful books but making a liveable wage from books is actually very rare. As a freelancer, I have no sick leave, no holiday pay, no superannuation and no contract that provides me with stability. I say all that not to moan, but to puncture and illusions people seem to have about feminist work being an ingenious get-rich-quick scheme. I want to keep creating feminist content and running a free Facebook page and Twitter, but I also recognise that this work IS work. In order to keep doing those things effectively in this environment, I need to put a value on it - not just the hours required to produce the work, but the impact that its fallout also produces which is often abusive in nature. 

This is an entirely voluntary pledge process. My writing will still be freely available and my Facebook page will remain open so that I can connect directly with people. There is no obligation to become a patron.

However, if you value what I do and want to help support me to keep doing it, your patronage would be greatly appreciated. All of your donations will help me to keep producing feminist content that challenges and explores the world we live in, while also providing me a platform to signal boost the work of other women and non binary voices. You can pledge to donate as little as $1 a month. 

So join me, fellow killjoys! Your pledge will be most sincerely appreciated, and I shall put in a good word for you with the feminist coven of witches so that they don't eat you.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Please read Patreon's page on calculating fees. I believe they use US dollars, so if you pledge $1 a month this will be subjected to conversion rates. There is also a small surcharge to keep Patreon funded. You can read all about it here!

Please also be aware that I have set this up as a monthly pledge. If you are lovely enough to pledge a higher amount but only intend it as a one-off payment, please take care to select the right option!
