The Revolution (Relaunch) is a revisionary, radical, and creative resurgence of the weekly women’s rights newspaper founded by Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony (1868-1872). Though based in Phoenix, AZ, we are not limited in scope or vision—geographic, demographic, or otherwise.
Tragically, in the wake of clinic closures and state bans on reproductive rights, as well as the detention of infants and children by both U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), it has begun to feel like we are re-entering an era that demands the kind of visibility and political passion of the first wave of feminism, a relaunching of the fervor and spirit of The Revolution with a revisionary eye toward the creative. From the battle for basic rights of citizenship and parenthood, to the right to claim our own bodies and access the care we deem appropriate, we are fighting for the lives of women, children, and the historically disenfranchised, and we will not relinquish our creativity in the process.
As we see it, our objective is to provide a multitudinous space for creative activism, for arts-based research and commentary, thereby producing a diverse body of compassionate, lyrical resistance as opposed to an inflamed polemic. Furthermore, by addressing the concerns of myriad cultures and populations affected by the growing totalitarian sentiments within our country, we’re highlighting many facets of the American socio-political narrative, all of which is the antithesis of “a singularity of purpose.”
The Revolution (Relaunch) is published monthly on the web and in print, hitting Phoenix newsstands around the first of each month. For distribution of the print version in Phoenix or elsewhere, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
