sistersunderground is a new radical women’s writing project which writes from the belief that radical feminism is the most important philosophy of our time and that radical feminism is the only envisioning of a future without male supremacy and all its inherent flaws
sistersunderground believes in the wired revolution of the information age We believe in the underground, in the underbelly, in the informal networks of women’s gatherings We believe in the radical possibility of a radical political movement right now.

sistersunderground is a constructive, subversive collective “…In our society, we're taught the metaphorical concept ARGUMENT IS WAR. Consequently, when we talk about arguments, we say things like, "I tried to defend my position but she outflanked me," "I really shot down her objections," "her arguments were right on target." No wonder we feel so good when we win arguments and so bad when we lose them. Our thought patterns mold our behaviors so that our arguments are "dangerous,“ "threatening," and "risky" for us. Suppose, instead, that we came up with new ways of thinking about arguments, ways that helped us learn less painful and destructive ways of behaving during arguments. How about ARGUING IS A SCAVENGER HUNT, ARGUMENT IS QUILTING, ARGUING IS WORKING A PUZZLE, ARGUMENT IS DANCING, or ARGUMENT IS SURFING? If we don't teach ourselves new ways to argue with each other, the alternative is to learn to agree with whatever another womon says, regardless of what we really think.” Julia Penelope and as such, we do not believe in the militarization of disagreement
