FWD Says Goodbye

FWD/Forward, the feminist and disability rights blog, said goodbye this week:
Long before FWD was even imagined, people were writing about disability and feminism, in spaces across the Internet, coming from a variety of lived experiences and beliefs. In the last year, we’ve noticed an explosion of new disability blogs, and an increased interest in disability issues at sites labeling themselves explicitly as feminist. This has been tremendously exciting to watch, as one of our goals was to join the ongoing conversation about feminism and disability, to amplify voices that weren’t being heard, to, yes, be part of the way forward towards a more intersectional discussion on feminism and disability.
I'm really sorry to see it go. It was one of the few disability blogs with a feminist viewpoint, and one of the only feminist blogs that wrote about dyslexia, blind photographers, and sign singers. You'll be missed.
