Fathom Events is replaying several of Hayao Miyazaki’s films on the big screen this fall, which seems like a great time to take a stroll down memory lane.

  • Who’s your favorite Miyazaki heroine?
  • Which movies spoke to you as a kid? As an adult?
  • How well have Miyazaki’s films held up as feminism continues to evolve?
  • Any recommendations of other anime films with great girls or women in the lead roles?

At this stage, we have raised enough money to be able to pay for contributed posts, behind the scenes admin, and audio editing for weekly podcasts. Our next goal is to pay the editors who have worked on AniFem as volunteers since before launch, making enormous contributions for no pay. Help us pay them for their work at a rate of $15 an hour by becoming a patron for as little as $1 a month!

We Need Your Help!

We’re dedicated to paying our contributors and staff members fairly for their work—but we can’t do it alone.

You can become a patron for as little as $1 a month, and every single penny goes to the people and services that keep Anime Feminist running. Please help us pay more people to make great content!
