Still fighting for reproductive justice: a feminist discussion on tactics

October 24, 2015 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Central St Martin’s College, 1 Granary Square
London, N1C 4AA United Kingdom
+ Google Map

Last year we held a debate on how to resist anti-abortion campaigners in the context of an escalation in the aggression and activity of these groups outside of clinics and differing opinions on how to confront them within the feminist community. We also felt that this rise was linked with the rise of fascists and the right, and so we located our activism within anti-fascist direct action and the reclaiming of space. We then used the content of that debate…

Feminist Fightback

Over the last few years, the space outside many abortion clinics in England has become contested. Right-wing religious groups have been making their presence felt outside clinics, both with prayer vigils complete with hymns and religious icons, and through the deployment of specially trained ‘pavement councillors’ who make great efforts to stop women going into clinics. Feminist Fightback has been one of the groups who have taken action against this growing anti-choice presence, countering in particular the group ‘Helpers’ of…

What is the connection between day-to-day workplace organising and wider anti-capitalist struggle? What is our role as ‘revolutionaries’ in our own workplaces? What kinds of workplace struggles open up possibilities for wider and more fundamental social and political change, and what kinds simply reproduce existing hierarchies and end up containing class struggle? This discussion event is for anyone involved in, or interested in having an open debate about, our varied experiences of workplace organising. There have been a number of…

Made in 1983, ‘Born in Flames’ (dir. Lizzie Borden) is an incredible docu-drama/ sci fi film set in the future, ten years after a social democratic revolution which has established American Socialism. However, Black and working-class women are not happy with this form of reformism and start arming themselves and forming the women’s army to bring about real revolutionary change (and beat up a few rapists on the way…). It’s an incredible insight into the Women’s Liberation Movement at a moment of intense artistic…

If you require childcare for this meeting please email feminist.fightback@gmail.com. As the Coalition government forces more and more mothers to return to work while their children are still very young, a growing right wing lobby argues conversely that staying at home to look after the children should be valued and supported. The feminist movement has long grappled with the problem of how to argue for women's right to combine motherhood and a career, without devaluing the crucial work of raising children. In the 1970s the Wages…

The S Word: A Conversation on Feminist Sex and Relationship Education

February 17, 2013 @ 11:00 am - 7:00 pm

We are a group from a diversity of backgrounds with an interest in the attitudes surrounding Sex and Relationships Education. We feel that a key reason why much SRE for young people is unsatisfactory is that as a society we have problems discussing, and having, sex and relationships in empowering ways. We therefore believe that in order to change attitudes, to question and become more comfortable with our own relationships and sexuality, and in short to build a society which…
