Appointed as Development Manager, The Feminist Press
The Feminist Press, founded in 1970, is the longest-running feminist publisher in the world. The Feminist Press, or FP, has always been an activist press, closely linked to the women’s movement and women’s studies at its inception and committed to recovering a lost literature—work that had gone out of print not because of its quality but because it was written by women. FP also publishes works by current feminist authors of any gender from around the world, and is itself a voice of contemporary intersectional feminist thought. As a nonprofit publisher, the Press focuses diligently on community outreach; diverse events and programs are a huge part of the work of the Press. The Development Manager will work closely with the Press’s Executive Director, the Treasurer of the Board of Directors, the External Relations Manager, and the Administrative Manager. This position participates in the creative and strategic thinking that will continue to raise the profile of the Press and continue to build a diverse group of readers, allies, and donors, including among new generations of feminists. The Development Manager will help maintain and expand areas of development in fundraising, grant writing digital technologies, building communities of supporters, cultivating and maintaining donors, and executing development campaigns.
