Our Aims

Our organisation is called FiLiA, a word meaning daughter, reflecting our intention to steadfastly continue the work of our fore-mothers to create a better world for our daughters. We are a women-led, volunteer organisation.
At the centre of our work is an annual conference showcasing and disseminating the work of researchers, NGOs, campaigners, artists and individuals who focus on improving the world for women and girls. 
In 2015, we were granted charitable status for the purposes of promoting equality and diversity, promoting human rights, and promoting the arts.

Human rights

Aim: 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.

Equality & Diversity

Aim: The promotion of equality and diversity, in particular equality between women and men, and to eliminate gender discrimination for the public benefit, including by running an annual conference on gender equality.

The Arts

Aim: 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 through other events and collaborations.
