About

Hello! This is Mona. My mission in life is to destroy the patriarchy! “Fuck the patriarchy” I say every day. And by supporting me here you are supporting the destruction of patriarchy! Thank you. 

I launched this Patreon now because my work to destroy patriarchy requires independence.

I am a feminist author and public speaker. Writing for me means freedom. By supporting me here, you help me remain independent -
free to write and create independently of what editors or the “market” wants. I am an anarchist feminist because of a tenacious and fierce determination to be free. Your support means the world to me.

Especially now - as we absorb the magnitude of this global pandemic - we must challenge that patriarchy and the inequalities and injustices it maintains and which have exacerbated the suffering and upheaval around pandemic. Now is the time to provoke, inspire, and instigate for a better world. Now is the time for creators to push - and for that, independence is key, So - thank you for your support!

I am the author of two books and countless news articles, essays and opinion pieces. There are three books that I am working on right now - one of them tentatively called Feminism, Football, Fucking - and at least a dozen essays are in various stages of completion. Several of those essays will eventually make it into those books so you will get to see them evolve right here!

My writing evolves. I am writing essays about anarchism, art, sex, revolution, queerness, poetry, music and perimenopause! I have launched a series - FEMINIST GIANT Dispatches from the Pandemic - short 2:20 minute video essays that are direct responses to and a challenge to the conversations around the global pandemic. They begin and they end with FUCK THE PATRIARCHY! Your support goes towards those videos.

I am a feminist and an anarchist. I consider my writing a form of direct action; part education and part preparation for the social change we need as we create the world we want. In that world, money would not be used to oppress. And to that end, I am offering the option of pay what you can for the first three tiers. I am not here to become wealthy. I am here to make enough to pay rent, health insurance and to pay my bills. Please know that I appreciate and I am grateful for any support that you can offer me. If you can spare more, I hope you consider it a form of paying it forward to help others - whose funds are more limited - to access my work. Whatever you can contribute - I appreciate you.

FUCK THE PATRIARCHY! 
Goals
$2,154 of $2,500 per month
My initial goal is to reach $2500 per month. When I reach that goal, I will hold a group Q&A video with all patrons. I will then create a new goal and announce ways I will celebrate that one too. Let's start with $2500!
