Hey! I'm Meghan Murphy. I'm the founder and editor of Feminist Current, Canada's leading feminist website. I've been a freelance writer and journalist for about eight years now, and have been producing and hosting the Feminist Current podcast since 2012. Now I'm looking to expand. I'm interested in moving into using YouTube as a medium, partly in order to connect with new audiences, but also because I'm interested in exploring topics beyond feminism (though of course I'm not abandoning feminism as a focus, either), and it seems like YouTube is a good place to do that.

As many of you know, I was recently banned from Twitter. My suspension was protested by many and covered by media outlets across North America, as well as in the UK. I was very grateful to have received support from people all across the political spectrum, who told me that while they may not agree with my politics, they supported my free speech and challenge popular discourse. I've really enjoyed connecting and speaking with so many people I would never have otherwise connected with, and appreciate being able to have civil, engaging discussions with those who may not share my politics or ideology. Exciting, in fact! I hope to do this more via my YouTube channel, and am looking forward to getting out of my comfort zone.

As an independent writer and journalist, being banned from Twitter is particularly hard hitting, as it silences me on a platform where the kinds of conversations and debates I'm involved in are happening. It also has a detrimental impact on my ability to work and make a living. I've built my career by taking risks, telling the truth, and asking uncomfortable questions, despite the incredibly harsh consequences. I want to be able to keep doing this. I don’t have an employer, I don’t work for a company, and I don’t have sponsorship. And that’s why I need you to support my work, so that I’m able to keep speaking, writing, doing interviews, and asking difficult questions — questions that multi-billion dollar companies like Twitter desperately want me to stop asking.

Thank you so much for your support!
