THE FEMINIST PARENT
Raising children with values and behaviors that support gender equity
What is The FP
Want to connect with other feminists and parents?
Our Community site offers a platform for you to communicate with other members by posting questions, blog posts, reflections, rants, book recommendations, poetry, whatever, as long as it inspires or relates to feminist parenting and helping kids discover an internal sense of freedom. Or feel free to just lurk and read what others are saying.
Want to Support Equality?
Every month or two we will suggest a new charity or organization dedicated to improving the lives of girls and women and provide a link for easy donations. Feel free to drop us a line with suggestions!
The FP Community
At thefeministparent.com, we’re ready for a generation of kids that know they deserve to reach their full potential (regardless of gender) and recognize when they're being limited (because of their gender). Together, by normalizing and celebrating differences, we can create healthy gender awareness as well as social justice-seeking in our kids.
Ever wonder how to teach your girls about gender bias and sexism without scaring them? Or how to teach your boys about gender inequality without shaming them? Or to teach all of them about privilege without making them feel better or worse than anyone else?
Progressive parents care about rectifying gender inequality so their sons and daughters can grow up with fewer socially-constructed constraints. In other words, parents who stand for equality are feminists.
Started by a mother and Clinical Psychologist based in U.S., The FP offers articles, opinions and ideas about how to increase your kids consciousness about these things without booooring lectures and hideous eye rolls.
If you stand for equality, then you're a feminist. Sorry
to tell you.
WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT THE FP
I am so grateful to have this comprehensive, centralized resource where I can direct patients, friends, and their kids. I trust The Feminist Parent to help people along their path.

All I can say is THANK YOU. This site describes my experiences growing up and as a woman and gives me the language for it that I've lacked. My kids will be better off for this. Heck, the world will be too. I'm relieved and grateful.
