Get to know Fawcett East London

How it all began...

We are a feminist group based in East London (but open to everybody connected to East London in one way or another) which relaunched in 2016.

We are affiliated with the Fawcett Society and share their vision of creating a society in which women and girls in all their diversity are equal and truly free to fulfil their potential, creating a stronger, happier, better future for us all.

...where we are today

Mostly online...!

We are an enthusiastic group of active members, gathering to learn, discuss and mobilise.

We are a friendly bunch, always keen to hear new ideas and experiences, and eager to make a positive contribution to the fight for gender equality.

We are creating a safe space

We are dedicated to creating a safe space for all members of the group new or old. We are striving to

  • Be welcoming and open for everyone

  • Be aware of our prejudices and how our words affect others

  • Respect each others opinion and world view

  • Treat each other with empathy and kindness

  • Call out any behaviour not in line with those principles

Join us to promote gender equality

We are always looking for new members and supporters so if you have ideas, questions, a little bit(or a lot) of time and energy please reach out!
