Salty’s feminism is not millennial pink. It’s not brand-safe, snackable, or neatly packaged for retweets.
Salty launched on International Women’s Day in 2018. (But was kicked off Mailchimp a few hours later, lol.)
Salty is a 100% independent, volunteer ran newsletter, bouyed by the voices of women, trans and non binary contributors from all over the world. We’re a hodgepodge troupe of intersectional, imperfect, smart, multidimensional feminist writers, editors and creators and we want you to be part of the Salty world.
Salty’s mission is to pass the mic to Salty babes across the world and amplify their stories on our platform. We fight for digital visibility for women, trans and non binary people and are fighting everyday to make sure our stories are not erased from the internet.
How it Works:
Salty is a newsletter, and is currently FREE. Subscribe here and you will receive Salty in your inbox two or three times a month. Our newsletter contains all original content and once a month, a feature with a Salty cover star.
note: If you can’t find the newsletter in your inbox, check your spam folder. And please mark our address as “not spam.” If the newsletter isn’t in your spam folder either, you should look in the Promotions or Updates tab. If you still can’t find it, give up and go to www.saltyworld.net, where you can always find the latest.
How Does Salty Stay Afloat?
Great question. Although we’ve seen unprecedented growth in a vast underserved market, Salty has limited access to the resources that are otherwise available to traditional media. We are not backed by investors, we are unable to join advertising networks, but instead we rely on our Members to contribute monthly to help keep us afloat. Become a Member here! As of November 2019, we are still a few thousand members short of being able to cover our overhead costs. Or make a one-off contribution here. We need you!
Who Runs Salty?
There are about 40 people who currently pitch in a little bit each month to help bring Salty to life. The Salty team is 100% made up of women, trans and non binary people (plus a sprinkling of queer guys.) There has never been a straight cis man on a Salty set, ever. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Salty content is primarily user generated and submitted via our website. *Submissions are currently full up until February 2020.
What Does Salty Stand for?
From day one, we created some central brand tenets to guide this project. Where ever Salty goes, we promise to uphold these core values and use them as Salty’s North Star. We value Inclusivity, Celebration over Condemnation, Authenticity, Fun and Respect. That means our focus is on celebrating people and amplifying stories that empower, educate and uplift our community.
