A message from FiLiA
The success of Feminism in London over the last few years has helped us reach a big milestone - we have been granted charitable status.
Our new 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.
FiLiA aims to:
• stand in sisterhood and solidarity with women and girls throughout the world in our collective struggle for economic, political and social liberation
• contribute to growing and strengthening the Women’s Liberation Movement
• work tirelessly and effectively to analyse, understand and dismantle patriarchy in all its forms everywhere
Sisterhood and Solidarity,
FiLiA VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITY: GRANTS MANAGER
Who are we looking for?
One of the challenges that we have faced is making our conference as accessible as possible. We have managed in some areas better than others, for example we have always had a creche and speech to text made available. However, we could do better, and this is where you come in. We are looking for a woman to support us with completing funding applications. Our aim is to apply for grants that will allow us to bring the ticket price down, opening the doors to more women on lower incomes.
A gift for you; our FiLiA 2017 Magazine.
Copies will also be for sale in our online shop which will be launched in January.
Details of the FiLiA 2018 conference will also be released in the New Year.
With deep thanks to Cath Bore for contacting us about the book 'Know Your Place' which can be bought HERE
'Know Your Place is a book that is a political howl from those who know that it is easier, that we are easier, to go unacknowledged and that our experiences, our lives, our humour are difficult for others to take.' Lisa McKenzie
There is no official record or commemoration of women killed by men in the UK, so KAREN INGALA SMITH is taking to social media to remember them
IN JULY 1981, at the first Feminist Conference for Latin American and Caribbean Women in Colombia, November 25 was declared an annual day of protest in memory of three activist sisters Patria, Maria Teresa and Minerva Mirabel who had been assassinated due to their involvement in efforts to overthrow the fascist government of Rafael Trujillo.
