Inspiring Feminist Activism
Feminars and Fundraising Events
The London Feminist Network and Feminism in London run occasional weekend workshops, which we call feminars (feminist seminars!). We are also holding a number of fundraising events to raise funds for Feminism in London over the next few months.

Feminism in London on BBC4
The London Feminist Network and the Feminism in London 08 conference featured in the third and final part of acclaimed filmmaker Vanessa Engle’s recent three-part documentary series about feminism and its impact on women’s lives. The concluding part, called Activists, was first shown on BBC4 on Monday 22 March.
What they said about Feminism in London 09
“Thank you, thank you, thank you! For the amazing speeches and to the organisers and workshop presenters – I have not had such an inspiring day in a long time and cannot wait for Feminism in London 2010 either!!”
“Thanks and huge congratulations to all who organised yesterday’s phenomenal event. I was at the Women’s Library ‘Ms Understood’ exhibition earlier in the week, looking at photos of the first UK Women’s Liberation Movement conference back in 1970 – so amazing that in the same week I can then attend an event like Feminism in London !”
“[The] crèche was fantastic (my little boy asked me if he can come back tomorrow), small prices for food and entrance means I will not struggle financially through next week and of course workshops and discussions were very interesting. It is good to know that I am not alone.”
“It was incredibly heartening to hear so many aspects of women’s lives being given a voice.”
