More About The Organisation
Bristol Feminist Network (BFN) is a group of women and men from Bristol and the surrounding areas who are interested in discussing feminist ideas, who believe in the importance of women's liberation, and who actively campaign on issues of gender inequality and oppression. BFN does not prescribe to one particular strand of feminist thought but does believe in the importance of reclaiming the word feminism from the common misrepresentations it has been subjected to within our culture. However, anyone who is interested in what we do, or who would like to learn more about feminism, but do not define themselves as feminist are still more than welcome to take part.
BFN holds informal meetings with the aim of providing a supportive, friendly and inspiring environment to share ideas, learn from each other and get active on what we think matters. We also aim to hold relevant workshops and seminars in order to educate ourselves on feminist issues and/or ideas. Furthermore, BFN strongly believes in activism. We want to raise awareness of feminism and gender issues within the community and act on the matters that we feel must change.
We want to raise awareness of feminism and gender issues within our community and act on the matters that we feel must change. We believe that challenging gender stereotypes, resisting sexist oppression and fighting for the rights of women can positively change the world for ALL who inhabit it.
