We’ll have all of the best parts of prom — music, dancing, party pics — but with booze! And fabulous raffle and silent auction prizes.

Dress up, dress down, wear what you want. Come alone, bring your boo or your crew. All are welcome! Yes, even menfolk.

Tickets are $40 in advance and $50 at the door. Proceeds support independent, woman-owned feminist media in Chicago.

About Us

Rebellious Magazine for Women is a Chicago-based intersectional feminist digital media organization that’s smart, funny, inspiring, empowering, smart-ass and yes, Rebellious!

Rebellious Magazine delivers a unique feminist perspective on Chicago news, events, politics and culture through original articles, essays and interviews. We support women-owned and women-operated businesses and organizations through editorial coverage and business partnerships.

Founder and Rebelle in Chief Karen Hawkins is an award-winning reporter and editor whose journalism background includes positions with The Associated Press, the Windy City Times, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel and the Palm Beach Post. She is the former director of communications for the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services, and she is Hubspot-certified in Inbound Marketing. She claims to be the only mouthy black lesbian feminist media founder over 40 in the country. If you can prove her wrong, she’ll buy you a glass of rosé.

Why Independent Journalism Matters

When an increasingly small number of wealthy white men own the vast majority of the media we consume, only the stories they care about get told, and they’re told through the lens those men understand. Rebellious Magazine is run for people on the margins by people on the margins. Our fierce freelancers are women-identified, nonbinary, straight, LGBT+, married, poly, parents, pet parents, living with disabilities and of every beautiful color of the rainbow. Your support funds the stories, reviews, articles and essays you see on these pages and keeps the site up and running. Thank you for your support!
