A little about Mookychick…

Mookychick is a passion project founded in 2005 which has continued to evolve ever since. This alternative feminist site and community is more than the sum of its parts, thanks to its incredible community and the many hundreds of contributors who have made it what it is today.

Our patron saints include but are not limited to Kate Bush, Frida Kahlo, Marie Laveau, Greta Thunberg, Ada Lovelace, Ursula K. Le Guin, Gina Torres, Helena Bonham Carter, Jeanne d’Arc, Marie Curie, Leonora Carrington, Doctor Who and St. Hildegard of Bingen. Mookychick is like water – babbling, tranquil, charged, unquiet, delicate, ferocious, restorative and deep.

If you join our team as a Social Media Manager, we will aim to make it a rewarding experience by raising your own visibility in the community, giving you space to rest and bloom. Want to take time out for personal reasons, or deep-dive into the role and spearhead a campaign? Simply let us know. We will accommodate your needs and listen.
