Bitch is more than a media outlet—we’re a world-changing, movement-making, uncompromising, and diverse community. The majority of our staff are people of color, as well as women or non-cisgender-male identifying. The vast majority of contributors are women-identified, and about half of all our contributors in 2019 were people of color. By creating opportunities for women and people of color to gain vital experiences in media, we strive for a more diverse future for American journalism
We strongly encourage people from minoritized communities to apply, particularly: people of color; immigrants; lesbian, gay, bisexual, queer people; and genderqueer, trans, and gender nonconforming folks.
