Leicestershire Fawcett Group is primarily an activist group – we endeavour to ‘do’ feminism, not just talk about it. We aspire to inform policy and practice through campaigning in the local area.
Our core interests include:
• the impact of the government’s austerity measures on women;
• violence against women;
• lads’ mags and the objectification of women;
• democracy and political engagement.
We aim to meet monthly and members give their time, ideas and skills to projects and events we undertake.
Leicestershire Fawcett Group receives no financial support from the Fawcett Society, so members pay a small annual subscription which enables the Group to organise events and fund its campaigns.
Current annual membership fees are: Waged £12.00 / Unwaged £6.00
Leicestershire Fawcett Group is a founder member of the LeicesterShire Women’s Forum, which brings together women’s groups from around the city and county to network, share information and work collaboratively.
