Who are we?

Feminists of_ (Fo_) is a growing network, movement, and organisation driven by the belief that gender equality benefits everyone.

 

A world with equal rights for all genders would benefit all people, across the entire gender spectrum, and everyone can play a key part in driving forward change. Fo_ aims to include everyone in the pursuit of  gender equality, particularly those who have been previously excluded.

 

Our work and mission are rooted in the belief that for gender equality to be achieved, it must be intersectional, anti-racist, trans-inclusive, and inclusive of all genders. The truth is that the patriarchy harms everyone, no matter their gender.

 

We are also champions for everyday people making a difference and that community is key to driving change. As an organisation, we build campaigns that invite people across the movement to create positive social impact by connecting, advocating and taking action. Our grassroots network is organised into chapters (community groups) which are run by ordinary people who are committed to driving change locally.

our
values

We are firmly underpinned by our three key values: intersectionality, anti-racism, and inclusivity.

Intersectionality 
We can’t discuss gender equality without also addressing how different elements of our identity, such as our race, can combine to intensify our experiences and oppression as individuals. It is how we view different factors or aspects of a person’s identity. They are usually connected, and can affect how people experience the world – both positively and negatively. This is especially important when we consider their impact in relation to the dynamics of power: who has it, what they do with it and how this might impact those who have less of it.
 

Anti-racism
It’s isn’t enough not to be racist. Not being racist is the bare minimum: the place to start (and where we should have been all along). Being actively and purposely anti-racist is necessary in a world where oppression is accepted as the norm. Therefore, all the work we do is underpinned by an anti-racist framework dedicated to countering systemic racism, racial prejudice and the oppression of specific racial groups through conscious efforts and deliberate actions.
 

Inclusivity
Through creating spaces where people’s differences are welcomed and valued, we aim to provide everyone in our community with a sense of belonging. To us, inclusivity is about welcoming, including and advancing people in all of their vibrancy.

Defining
OUR Values

 


our movement is open to everyone who believes in gender equality.
 

Feminists of_ is run by volunteers who are passionate about gender equality, radical inclusion, and building communities for like-minded people to connect.

 

Our volunteers are what keep us running. The time, passion
