Feminists Work For Change is a feminist working group based in the West Midlands.
Working independently and co-operatively alongside other groups, organisations, campaigns and individuals, Feminists Work For Change aims to address issues affecting the lives of women and girls, and to create positive change in the immediate and longer term, locally and nationally.
Feminists Work for Change welcome a diverse range of women and gender non-conforming folks from all different backgrounds, ethnicities, age groups, sexual orientations, and economic backgrounds.
Feminists Work For Change will:
BACK UP: Support local groups and people who are already doing effective work for women in the region, offering our time, voices and skills to help them progress and succeed.
ELEVATE: Link into a UK-wide network of feminists campaigning nationally, strengthening their messages by promoting, petitioning and supporting them through our own networks and contacts.
ORGANISE: Collectively identify the urgent issues and gaps in provision facing women and girls in the West Midlands. Putting our ideas, experience, energy and effort into effective use, we aim to deliver positive solutions that can make a difference.
We welcome CIS men’s support in all areas except at planning meetings. We believe that women, trans people and gender non-conforming folks need to be at the forefront of the move to dismantle the patriarchy and therefore we need safe, collective spaces where we can organise, share our experiences, learn from each other and support one another.
