Who is FiLiA?
'FiLiA' means daughter; we are the daughters of the women who came before us and we fight so that our daughters may be free.
The focus of our work is our annual Women’s Rights Conference, which we have hosted since 2013.
FiLiA also takes part in other activities including art exhibitions, consultations, campaigns etc subject to capacity.
We are a Women-led Volunteer organisation and part of the Women’s Liberation Movement.
FiLiA ‘s vision is a world free from Patriarchy where all Women and Girls are Liberated
FiLiA s mission is to contribute to the Women’s Liberation Movement by:
♀️ Building Sisterhood and Solidarity (locally, nationally, globally)
♀️ Amplifying the Voices of Women (particularly those less often heard or purposefully silenced)
♀️ Defending Women’s Human Rights
Our Charitable Aims
In 2015 FiLiA was granted charitable status for the purposes of promoting equality and diversity, promoting human rights, and promoting the arts. Our charitable aims are:
♀️ To promote human rights (as set out in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and subsequent United Nations conventions and declarations) and in particular women's rights throughout the world
♀️ The promotion of equality and diversity, in particular equality between women and men, and to eliminate gender discrimination, including by running an annual conference
♀️ To promote art for the benefit of the public, in particular to promote the art of women, especially socially excluded women, by the provision of an art exhibition at the annual conference, and other collaborations
