About the Conference
Welcome to Feminism in London! In 2015 we were granted charitable status for the purposes of promoting equality and diversity, promoting human rights, and promoting the arts. At the centre of our work is an annual conference showcasing and disseminating the work of researchers, NGOs, and individuals in the sphere of women's rights.
FiL is women-run and women-led, but is open to everyone to attend. It will focus on activism and inspiration not just academic discourse, although we intend that all attendees should be able to enjoy the event and gain from it.
The conference addresses a wide range of issues from feminist history to women's human rights.
At FiL we hope to approach these topics in a way that is engaging yet accessible.
The objectives of FiL are to provide an explicitly feminist conference which will be inclusive of all women, including women with disabilities, women of colour, LGBT women, younger and older women, women on lower incomes and women with children. We feel strongly that sexism and male domination are not over when the most privileged women in society alone move forward; feminism must include all women or it is not feminism at all. The focus of the conference will be on what we can achieve together.
What is the purpose of the conference?
Feminism in London is more than just a conference, with smaller events throughout the year and a variety of actions. We want to unite, to inform, and to inspire those who attend. We are not just a talking shop - we will be drafting documents and formulating strategy, while networking opportunities allow feminists from around the globe to share ideas and to build upon one another's work.
