We’re the social networking app building a better digital world for women and non-binary folks. Whether you want to ask for support, make meaningful connections, or get in-depth self-development advice & tools, there’s a Communia for you.
We’re a safe space for anyone who’s tired of the internet revolving around the male gaze. We create the tech and the tools that put our needs first, because they were created by people who understand our experiences. Communia is a place for you to express yourself authentically, access community support and find resources + tools to get you through life’s best (and worst) moments. Whether you’re reading this on your way to work, crying in a bathroom stall (we’ve been there), or planning your next adventure – we’re here to support.
Be your unedited self on Communia Social, the free social networking side of the app. All users are verified by human moderators before they can communicate with you, which means no trolls, no bots and no fake accounts. Share your experience, your wisdom and your opinions on topics from #MeToo, Work & Money, to Mental Health and everything in between. Crowdsource advice from tens of thousands of women who really get it and support others on their journeys too, because it’s only when we tell our stories that the narrative starts to change.
Connect with yourself as much as you connect with others on Communia Self, the suite of digital tools we’ve created to enhance your self development journey. Starring our unique AF digital journaling tool! Totally customizable, multi-media, and collaborative – this is the trusted wellness standby like you’ve never seen it before. Journal privately, publicly, or with your closest circle of friends depending on your mood. Access prompts for days you need a little extra support, and get inspired by the community’s journals on the Discover feed. You’ll see journals on endless topics! Think sexual wellbeing, but also creativity and work place wisdom.
Who says self care has to be lonely?
Because we’re committed to creating a better digital world in all ways, we don’t sell user data or allow advertisements on the app. Communia will never use your data without your permission, or share your information with third parties.
Here’s to doing social media right, to never having to navigate our journeys alone, and always being a part of a community.
Communia is for all women and marginalized genders – we welcome anyone who identifies with she/her, they/them pronouns, or isn’t quite sure yet. And this should go without saying, but trans women are women, and as such, Communia is trans inclusive. This is our safe space online, and we have a zero-tolerance policy on unsupportive behavior like hate speech, bullying, and triggering content. If you feel unsafe at any time on our platform, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or report it in the app. Our Care Officers will be in touch with you asap.
We are committed to providing free resources for #MeToo survivors. The Communia app is home to free articles, advice, and community support for women and marginalized genders all over the world. Supporting this platform helps to keep these services free for those who need us the most.
Hi! I’m Olivia DeRamus, founder of Communia. I created this app because I, like many women, didn’t want to go through life alone anymore. Tired of the barrage of #fakenews we’ve experienced these past few years, fed up with looking for resources only to come up empty, utterly done with the trolls, mansplaining, and harassment found on traditional social media channels and IRL, and ready for a better world – that hasn’t quite appeared yet.
When I was 19, I was sexually assaulted. Despite winning my case in a university tribunal, my attacker sued me in court for defamation, claiming millions of dollars in damages.
It took me years, and the majority of my adult life, to put a stop to the legal onslaught. Despite the fact that the truth was on my side, it wasn’t safe for me to tell people about what I was going through. Anyone I confided in could be dragged into the case. I was stuck in a situation where I couldn’t advocate for myself, and I couldn’t talk about my experience with others. I was firmly, and forcibly, put on mute.
While I had to accept that my story couldn’t be shared, I knew I didn’t have to accept the suppression of other women’s voices. I was silenced in many ways, but I did have the ability to create something that could empower other women. That something more helpful than what the male dominated tech industry had created was necessary & possible with enough imagination. That something turned out to be Communia (originally called the Restless Network). What today has become a way for women and other marginalized genders everywhere to access what I wish I had back then: information, community support, and true connection – with ourselves, and others.
Yes, I was a victim. But you know what? Through that difficult time, I also had a lot of fun and adventure despite the trauma. Just because we sometimes have to face difficult things in our lives, doesn’t mean that there isn’t room for joy, dancing, and even ambition. So that’s Communia. We’re a safe space to talk about the difficult stuff, but we also encourage you to have fun, chase your dreams, chat about that first date you had, and find adventure. We’re bold, optimistic – and most importantly, here for you always. For me, finding joy was my ultimate rebellion. I hope with Communia you find yours too.
