Former Tumblr employee, Amber Gordon and her team hit the crowdfunding giant in March 2015 for the fully functional, community-powered publisher. The description read:
“We are a place to share experiences, all of life’s moments from the awkward to the amazing, and everything in between. We’re more than a website or events – we’re a movement. We are providing a safe space to connect, learn and grow with other female-identified people. Everything you see was written by someone like you.
“We’re a diverse collective (sexuality, racial, economic, career, geographical, etc.) or doers who have made it our mission to change the dialogue of what it’s like to be a woman – and in doing so, make our world a better place.”
Unfortunately, Femsplain’s crew revealed the bad news over the weekend:
“When we brought Femsplain into the world, we never thought it would become as big as it is today. I never dreamed I’d be running a company at 24, but we did it because someone had to and we really believe in what we’re doing.
“With that, it’s important that we be transparent on where we’re at as a company and what we need to be doing in order to succeed. Starting next month, Femsplain will be taking a break from publishing new content. This by no means implies we’re going anywhere, but rather in the meantime Gabriela and I will be focusing efforts toward expanding our future vision while dedicating more time to our daily newsletter, Femsplainer.”
It was also noted that the team will update Femsplain’s social accounts with older stories and inspirations. They will also organize events/meet-ups, be on slack. They just won’t be publishing new content.
