about us

FWF is building a community of feminist writers, readers, speakers and leaders, united in their goal to end gender inequality through the power of storytelling and conversation. Through our events, podcasts, publishing and facilitation, we connect audiences and experts to come together, to share stories and enhance their capacities to contribute to the cause.

DONATE

FWF is a not-for-profit, mostly volunteer-run organisation, so we value any donations you can offer. We are committed to providing opportunities for feminist writers whose voices are often unprioritised and all donations go directly into running and planning FWF events and monthly publishing. Most importantly, your donation ensures that the incredible writers speaking, teaching and writing for FWF can be paid for their work.
