An Affirmation of Feminist Principles


In a joint statement, women, feminist, LGBTIQ+, and trans-led organisations are coming together to reaffirm what we believe are core feminist principles and to amplify the positions that many feminists have historically taken in relation to understanding gender, sex, and sexuality.

The statement outlines eight principles fundamental to feminism and the achievement of gender equality and reinforces the place that trans, intersex, and nonbinary people have alongside many others in feminist movements.

We believe that feminist human and social rights movements have to stand united against threats to democracy and fundamental freedoms, and for the principles of human rights, social justice, and equality.
