The University of Essex Feminist Society strives to change the negative perspective that many hold on feminism. We aim to raise awareness about inequality both around the world and locally.
We are a very active society and host many events and campaigns aimed at promoting equality, diversity and intersectionality. We also raise money and collect donations for local, national and international women's charities and focus on combatting women's issues at university.
Everybody is welcome and we encompass and discuss all forms of feminism.
Come and join us for book clubs, socials, discussion, guest speakers and invite your friends!
