Feminist Review- Trust since 1979 has been working for inclusion and gender equality, through donations to projects both nationally and internationally. Most of the subsidies seek to generate social impact through change and the internalization of values towards the inclusion of women.
Feminist Review will fund:
- Projects difficult to finance. Some types of projects are difficult to finance. Normally, these projects do not have other obvious sources of financing. This could mean, for example, that traditional academic sources are not interested in the area or that it is an activist project or that it is too feminist for most conventional funding sources. For example, the Foundation supported the drafting and publication of the history of the rape crisis in Scotland and the translation and updating sections of “Women and their bodies” in Arabic and Hebrew.
Pump priming activities. This means that we will provide a small amount of funds to help start an activity in the hope that it can then attract enough funds to continue. For example, we funded a project in Argentina to strengthen the capacity of organizations that promote women’s rights and a project to provide audiovisual equipment to a feminist social center in Madrid. In each case, we hope that these projects have helped create a sustainable activity.
Interventionist projects that support feminist values. It is often difficult to find funding for projects around central feminist concerns such as abortion rights and domestic violence. For example, the Trust has supported Asylum Aid (an independent charity workshop with asylum seekers in the United Kingdom) to promote its “Bill of Rights” for women seeking asylum. We support the 40th Anniversary of Abortion Rights Campaign in the United Kingdom, a documentary on abortion in Trinidad and Tobago and a feminist art studio in Tbilisi, Georgia.
Training and development projects: we will finance projects that provide training in relevant areas. For example, the Trust has funded English lessons for sex workers in London; Training in leadership skills for women in the voluntary sector. and training volunteers such as the Glasgow Women’s Library.
Unique events: we support Cine25 as part of the celebrations of 25 years of Women’s Studies at the University of York (United Kingdom); a seminar for the Lileth Project (a project related to violence against women’s housing) and a workshop on the gender dimensions of the Bulgarian Immigration Policy. Dissemination: we will finance the production and distribution of relevant material. Very often, a wonderful job has had a more limited impact than it should because it was not well distributed.
The Fund will finance the diffusion. For example, we have supported the production of a brochure on the experiences of Asian women in higher education in the United Kingdom and the distribution of publications for Women’s Rights (a UK non-profit group).
Basic financing: we realize that many groups are struggling to raise basic funding. The Trustees are willing to offer basic funds to cover staff costs, accommodation, etc., except in cases where applicants seek basic funds to replace funds lost as a result of public sector cuts. Other projects: if your application does not easily fit into any of the previous categories, we can still back it up. For example, the Foundation has funded a project to capture oral histories of women’s menopause experience. Contact the Trust to discuss eligibility before submitting your application.
