"I first  attended Feminism In London conference in 2015.  It was such an exciting weekend and I couldn't wait for the next conference.  I knew immediately I wanted to participate in some way to bring that next conference about and so I became a volunteer (which I juggle with full time paid work and being a single parent - we all do what we can).  The FiLiA conference is organised by amazing women volunteering their time to create a weekend that is unique, important and so special, and I am very excited to be a part of it."

KIRSTIE SUMMERS

Kirstie Summers is a London-based writer whose work gives her an opportunity to explore and comment on all kinds of exciting things, from new technology to old literature. She was lucky enough to have been raised to believe she can do anything she sets her mind to and wants to be a part of the force that ensures that no little girl feels restricted by the circumstances of her birth.

Working with FiLiA gives her an opportunity to be on the ground floor of the women’s rights movement in London. She uses her creative writing skills to communicate the important work done at FiLiA to whoever will read it in the hopes it will encourage more people to get involved and make the world a better place.

SALLY JACKSON

I have been a feminist for as long as I can remember. I currently work supporting the response to violence against women and am passionate about not just responding but preventing it happening in the first place. I believe violence against women is both a cause and consequence of women’s inequality and so am passionate about making the world feminist.

In 2014 I went to my first Feminism in London Conference and was blown away by the amazing speakers and atmosphere. It reinforced and invigorated my feminist activism and have loved being involved with the organisation since. There are so many awful things that happen to women across the world, but their resilience, intellect, humour and tenacity is inspiring – Women are awesome!
