About Us

Who We Are & What We Do

We live in a rape culture where there are many silent victims amongst us (according to RAINN, 1 in 6 women will be the victim of a completed or attempted rape during her lifetime). We live in a rape culture where those who are assaulted are frequently blamed for being victims and prohibited from speaking out. We live in a rape culture where catcalling on the street, unwanted advances and "innocent" groping is not only excused but has become an everyday part of our lives. We live in a rape culture, and many of us are ignorant to the inequities that our society has normalized.

Here at MVMENT, we believe that by engaging with these issues—reading survivors’ stories and opinion pieces from allies, learning more about proper conduct and what constitutes consent, understanding the laws and rules institutions are required to uphold, and seeing powerful artwork, pictures and visual media—we can begin to understand our current reality, and only then can we start the process of change. To learn more about why we started, read our Letter From the Editors.

We hope to publish a magazine-esque product monthly and update our website weekly with new content. We are, however, still in the planning stages and working diligently to iron out the details of our operation. If you have any ideas, comments or suggestions, please get in touch with us (see our Contact Us page). If you wish to play a role or get more involved with the publication, visit our Getting Involved page. To read past articles and see previous submissions, refer to our Past Works page.

As of now, we are not affiliated with any institution, but we hold ourselves to the highest journalistic standards.

Who We Are

We are currently working on a special page to show our team organization and share a little bit about ourselves.


What We Do

See Getting Involved for the different sections of MVMENT and brief summaries of each one.

We do reserve the right not to publish any submission that we feel is inappropriate, offensive, endangering or otherwise unsuitable for MVMENT. In these cases, we will provide our rationale to the writer, artist or photographer (if we know their identity) and highly encourage edited resubmissions.



Usage of Visual Submissions

Submitted visual artwork that is approved will be edited by our photography manager and artwork curators to make it suitable for publication. If the artist would like to be involved with this process, we will make that option available. If discernable individuals are present in a photo or other piece of artwork, we must receive their consent before beginning the publication process.


What MVMENT Is:

  1. A platform dedicated to gender and sexuality inequality issues on highschool and college campuses.
  2. Currently an online publication with 8 literary sections and 3 photography/visual art sections. Learn more about each section on our Getting Involved page.
  3. A publication of all perspectives and accounts that deal with these issues. We believe that engaging with the problem involves wading through nuanced issues and ideas that need to be expressed. By trying to report the full picture, we are better equipped as individuals to be allies and change the culture we live in
  4. A publication run by students, for students
  5. Aiming to empower individuals and help change the perspective on our current climate

What MVMENT Is Not:

  1. A publication just for girls. Or guys. Or any specific group of individuals. We seek all perspectives, because it is only with differing opinions can we have a rich discussion.
  2. A place for pieces that insult, mock, disparage or otherwise potentially cause harm to victims and allies
  3. Affiliated with any particular school or institution. We report the truth without any bias.
  4. A publication for those seeking legal justice. When reporting survivor/victim stories for example, we have extensive measures in place to guarantee the anonymity of all parties and individuals present
  5. A publication only for victim stories. Not only are there opinion pieces for those who would like to write about their perspective and ideas but also sections dealing with current news regarding and gender and sexuality issues (both locally and nationally), investigative journalism (eg. what are the proper laws in place, who is required to report), educational proper conduct pieces (ex. What is misogyny? How do we perpetuate it?) and a few more. In addition, we accept artwork submissions and photography as well
