DMI blog on the NYC housing myth: there is, without a doubt, enough vacant property in Manhattan to house every single homeless person. So why are they still living on the street?

Jill at Feministe responds to the recent criticism of Full Frontal Feminism.

Quench Zine likes the food stamp challenge (of which I am not such a fan).

  1. Hey there,

    I’m trying to get ahold of you about something, but I can’t seem to find an email address on your site (I could just be an idiot). If you have a second, would you mind dropping me a quick email? jill.filipovic@gmail.com. Thanks!
