We are feminists, grassroots community groups and organizations that support intersectional feminism. We are concerned about your ongoing relationship with Meghan Murphy as one of your editors. Murphy has been publishing material that dehumanizes and disrespects women with different experiences and perspectives than hers for many years, in particular Black women, women in the sex industry and trans women. By allowing Murphy to continue as an editor at Rabble.ca you are giving a platform to her hate and we are writing to demand that you end your association with her as editor and columnist.
A small cohort of neoliberal organizations are attempting to silence and/or end Meghan Murphy's employment with Rabble. They've created a petition that reads more like a tantrum. This small group of people think it's appropriate to silence any woman's voice that doesn't march lock step in line with their opinions and politics. In their petition they've given no adequate reasons nor evidence as to why Murphy should be fired/restricted in her writing.
Meghan Murphy is a brilliant writer and gives voice to many in the feminist community, especially the lesbian community.
