Feminist Deliver Values:

  • Decolonial: We believe that at the core of the feminist agenda lies the fight to decolonize our societies including our laws, structures of governance, organizations, and ways of thinking.
  • Intersectional: We believe that structures of power including colonialism, patriarchy, racism, and capitalism, intersect to create diverse and compounding experiences of oppression and marginalization.
  • Inclusive: We are inclusive of all people that experience marginalization on the basis of gender including Trans, two spirit and non-binary people Inclusive Transformative change comes from the grassroots and those most impacted by intersecting forms of oppression must be key actors in all conversations that engage their interests
  • Grassroots: The exclusion of grassroots feminist voices in the global women’s agenda and connecting grassroots struggles are a key priority for the global women’s agenda.
