What We Stand For

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 – we believe in passing the mic.

How it Works:

Once you subscribe you will receive our newsletter 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.

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, where you can always find the latest.

Who Runs Salty?
There are about 40 people who currently help bring Salty to life, and we’re all volunteers. We prioritize the voices that legacy media traditionally overlooks, and inclusion and diversity behind the scenes at Salty is just as important as it is on our covers. The Salty team is 100% made up of women, trans and nonbinary people (plus a sprinkling of queer guys.) There has never been a straight cis man on a Salty set, ever.  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

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.
