Feminist Fightback

Feminist Fightback is an activist collective developed out of conferences in 2006 and 2007, inspired by the politics of a range of anti-capitalist feminist struggles. FF believe that no single oppression can be challenged in isolation from all other forms of exploitation that intersect with it. They are also committed to fighting for a feminist perspective and awareness of gender issues everywhere in our movement – not marginalising ‘women’s rights’ as a separate issue.

Feminist Fightback are a trans friendly group, whose planning meetings are open to all-self defining women and who involve all genders in their wider activities, working on a non-hierarchical and consensus basis. New people are very welcome to attend any meeting simply to find out more about FF.
