After 25+ years of publishing Rain and Thunder: A Radical Feminist Journal of Discussion and Activism, the Rain and Thunder Collective has made the difficult decision to end what has been a very long and successful run. We will continue to offer back issues of Rain and Thunder to the community and support the efforts of other radical and Lesbian feminist print and digital media forum. Please refer to our Resources page for a list of publications and platforms to connect with and support.

We also encourage women to create the feminist media they are longing to read! Rain and Thunder was started by a small grassroots group of women who wanted to see radical feminist ideas and analysis get out into the world. You, too, can do the same! Let us know if you are interested in starting up a radical feminist publication, newsletter, or online journal, and we can help provide you with the tools to get it off the ground.

We want to express our immense gratitude for our readers and supporters throughout the years. It has been an honor to publish Rain and Thunder, to watch it grow and be a dynamic space for radical women's ideas and voices to flourish. We have been incredibly fortunate to work with so many remarkable women - writers, artists, and activists - and to connect with so many inspiring women who have read and engaged with our pages.

The spirit, strength, and vision of Rain and Thunder lives on in the work that we each do individually and collectively to create a better world for women and girls. Our work does not end - it merely changes and evolves.
