Hi! We're the feminist society. As intersectional feminists, we are striving towards the political, social and economic equality for womxn. We think it’s very important to consider all the different aspects of discrimination based on your identity.
We host a wide variety of events, including debates and conversations, movie nights, book clubs, pub quizzes, socials and we organize volunteering opportunities in Tower Hamlets! In 2018 we attended a variety of protests held in central London, including the women's march, the sex workers strike and a pro-choice counter-protest! We even have a weekly radio show called power radio!
In 2020, and 2021 we held online events ranging from education events, to socials to discussion sessions on important issues.
The feminist society aims to:
1. Educate the public about social inequality in the United Kingdom and globally through local outreach.
2. Promote equality for all people through political activism in our local community.
3. Create a safer environment on campus and in societies for minorities by implementing social change.
We want to equalise, educate, and ensure equitable rights for those studying at the university and the local community.
