My name is Chelsea Kilpack, and I’m an advocate of feminism living in Salt Lake City, Utah. I have an MA in Community Leadership from Westminster College, and a Bachelor of Science in Gender Studies and Political Science from the University of Utah. My research interests include the prevention of sexual assault at an institutional level, enthusiastic consent and the role of sex positivity, and institutional diversity. I’m a current member of the YWCA’s Young Women’s Leadership Council, and President of the Utah National Organization for Women. I am a proud Utahn, advocate of intersectional feminism, and a lover of all things food and fitness.

This site is a space where my friends and I share local and national news, gender studies theory, a feminist analysis of pop-culture, and bits of our life experience living in this conservative valley.

The Mission

The goal of this site is to spread information about feminism, activism, and everything in between. I try to avoid overly academic prose and a writing style that alienates people outside of the academy (that means there’s some cussing and attempts at jokes). I advocate for a world without the following:

  •  Racism/white privilege
  • Sizeism
  • Sexism
  • Classism
  • Ableism
  • Homophobia
  • Transphobia
  • Victim-blaming

Policy on Comment Moderation

This is a space for constructive dialogue, which means we all have to check the personal insults at the keyboard. SLC Feminist will not tolerate racism, sexism, victim blaming, or anything from the list above in our comments section. Keep it tactful, keep it constructive, and keep in mind that there’s a person behind the words you respond to.
