Ladies, you’ve been there. Some man insists on getting your phone number. He’s annoying and the only thing that might make you feel safe is just giving him a fake number. But some self-absorbed men are left wondering why. 

669-221-6251—a feminist phone intervention project—is a quick solution that gets a point across. A phone call or text to the number acquires a bell hooks quote in return.

So the next time you’re rolling your eyes from some mactivist trying to talk to you, remember that 669-221-6251 can help. You can also donate to the feminist phone international project; all proceeds raised beyond the cost of the phone bill will benefit The National Latina Institute for Reproductive Health.
