Our mission statement
These days, everyone has an opinion.
We do too – and we’re proud of it. It’s the main reason we started The Egalitarian. We’ve created a space to vocalise our opinions in a factual and informed manner – whilst not limiting ourselves to 280 characters. We aim to provide a big load of ‘wake-up content’ to help you analyse what is actually going on in the world and offer a different viewpoint on news stories or current affairs that you may already be aware of.
We’re well and truly fed up of a lack of accessible journalism regarding modern-day gender inequality, so most of our writing will be tackling issues related to this. The Egalitarian aims to produce reliable, enlightening content that tackles the unfair system we are still experiencing in the 21st century. We believe that feminist debate is hindered and we want to give it a platform, in a fresh and vibrant way. Most gender disparity goes unnoticed, or is not taken seriously enough. We want to raise awareness of the overt and covert problems with gender inequality, which can then trigger discussion, debate and education on and off our site.
That’s our USP. It shouldn’t be a USP, but it is.
The Egalitarian is UK-based but is not limited to UK news. We talk about global issues, and we’re passionate about collaborating with contributors from every walk of life. We are not journalists, nor do we aspire to be. We’re just alright at writing – and want to express our opinions and inspire a debate.
Welcome to The Egalitarian.
How we use pronouns
Articles in The Egalitarian aim to discuss gender inequalities. Although we may use male and female pronouns, we understand that trans women and men, transgender and non-binary people are victims of sexism, misogyny and other issues raised on our website. We also accept and acknowledge that many people do not identify with a gender and we do not wish for anyone to feel disconnected or unrepresented in our articles. Please accept that for the purpose of writing to our readers, for ease, the articles you see on this website may use the pronouns male and female. However we do not wish to cause offence to anyone taking their time to read our content.

A loud and foul mouthed, aggressively opinionated feminist, apparently. The feminist part is correct. Actually just a young woman who cares about choice, freedom and equality for all. And when you’re passionate about these things, you do have to make a bit of noise to be heard. Will always have a little fun with it along the way as well.
