Position Description

The Feminist Press at the City University of New York is the longest-running feminist publisher in the world. As such, it has continued to grow and evolve in the current era as feminism and publishing both face new challenges. The Feminist Press has always been an activist press, closely linked to the women’s movement and women’s studies at its inception, committed to reprinting “lost” women’s voices, and works that had long been out of print. In recent years, it has added to its mission by publishing original works by current feminist authors from around the world, and is establishing itself as a voice of modern feminist thought. The Feminist Press is seeking a Development Associate who will work with the Executive Director and the Development Manager to build a widening group of readers and supporters, especially among new generations of feminists. At a time of exciting – and challenging – changes in the industry, this position also offers the opportunity for the fellow to participate in the creative and strategic thinking that will help the Feminist Press adapt to new digital publishing technologies, and will provide skills that can be used across a broad range of industries and career paths.
