UK Feminista is a new feminist campaigning organisation aimed at bringing UK feminists together to fight for an end to gender inequality. It was co-founded by Kat Banyard, author of the recently published Equality Illusion. UK Feminista will provide campaigning resources and training, act as a bridge between activists at a grassroots level and women’s/feminist organisations, facilitate links between activists, profile and celebrate feminist activism in the UK and promote public awareness about gender inequality and the need for feminism.

UK Feminista launches this Saturday, 27 March at The Women’s Library in London, 11am – 3pm:
