Tell us what resources YOUR movements need right now!

Power. Money. Accountability. Sustainability. What do these terms mean when you think about funding for feminist activism?

Let’s open the conversation

We invite you to raise your voice and be part of the groundswell of activists defining for themselves the resources they need to build feminist movements -- now and far into the future. 

  1. Record a short clip of yourself completing the statement: To support feminist movements right now, funders SHOULD/MUST…

  2. Share your video and tag us on Instagram (@awidwomensrights) and Twitter (@awid) using the hashtag #FeministFunding.

  3. Add your voice by September 5th, to be part of the dialogue! (Next, AWID will compile shareable videos that show the power of our voices together.)

  4. Follow the hashtag #FeministFunding. Watch and share in your advocacy and to inspire movements’ OWN definition of feminist funding.

TIPS:

  • Make it personal: Talk about your own needs and context.

  • Make it vibrant: Show us how your activism could thrive if it was resourced in a more feminist way. 

  • Make it propositional: Imagine how funders can step up in a feminist way in this moment.

Not an expert in grant-making?

Perfect! That is what we are looking for!  We invite activists in all their diversity to raise their voices and share their hopes for a feminist  resourcing ecosystem. 

YOU know better than anyone what kind of funding, support and solidarity your organizing needs. And we know that many funders want to hear what movements need to do their most transformative work. So... to your camera!

And then what?

We will compile your powerful video testimonials into an advocacy tool for feminist movements.

We hope that this compilation of voices from all over the world will bring strength to our collective advocacy for better, more sustainable and flexible feminist funding.

“High hopes and expectations on resourcing feminist movements: recommendations to the Equality Fund”

This open conversation follows the global consultations with feminist activists to inform the design and build phase of the new Equality Fund. 

During those consultations with more than 1,000 activists from over 60 countries, we learned firsthand what our movements need and want to resource their organizing and drew a set of 17 recommendations on:

  • Grant-making
  • Investment & Philanthropy
  • Governance & Accountability
