Subject: FRIDA | The Young Feminist Fund is a new initiative for young
feminist activists globally
See FRIDA! The new Young Feminist Fund is currently cultivating donors, so
if you are of that ilk do pony up, but also, those of us who are not, keep
an eye out for calls for proposals:
FRIDA | The Young Feminist Fund is a new initiative that funds and
strengthens the participation and leadership of young feminist activists
globally. The Fund is a collaborative effort between the Association for
Womens Rights in Development (AWID), *The Fondo Centroamericano de
American Womens Fund (FCAM) and an experienced group of young feminist
activists from different regions of the world.* *
The Funds *Theory of change* derives from the core belief that womens
movements are strengthened when young feminist activists and their
organizations are provided with the resources and capacity they need to
mobilize resources for their work. Supporting young feminists is key to the
expansion, rejuvenation and sustainability of womens movements and
organizations, both now and in the future.
The Fund defines young feminist activists as young people from across the
gender spectrum committed to advancing gender equality and womens rights
through explicitly feminist means. Based on the understanding that
discrimination occurs within all societies, the term feminist is used to
refer to individuals working within womens movements or in other social
movements to advance the rights equality, justice, dignity, freedom and
safety of women, girls and marginalized groups.
