We’ve got news for you, BUSTies: Feminist Network Project, born from a group of international feminists who met at the World Social Forum in Tunis, has created THE internet location for feminists of the world to congregate, mobilize and talk tactics. There is even a register queuing up how many feminists there actually are in the world. Take a look at this map, and indulge in a feeling that is better than puppies: the feeling that you are not alone.

The site is already published in several languages including English, French, Spanish and German; the register form is also available in Arabic. As of now, the site is funded solely by its handful of founders, but translation efforts are underway to make it available to women all over the world. If you would like to inspire other feminists with the power of numbers (I did!) – you can use a pseudonym to remain anonymous, then register here!
“We … are putting out a call to feminists from every country around the world: let us unite, let us make ourselves known, and let us raise our voices to incite a radical change.” –Feminist Network Project
