Intersectional Gender Equality Fund

‘We will not have equality until those most marginalized among us have equality’ (Human rights Campaign)

We at Gender Equality Perth believe in equality for all and intersectional* feminism, at the same time recognising our privilege and that as a collective we represent limited lived experience of the spectrum of discrimination. To address this limitation, we want to support the fight of those working in the intersectional feminist space towards equality for all. We believe that change comes from solidarity, collectivity and forging new connections, therefore we are offering funding of up to £1000 to local initiatives in Perth and Kinross who are furthering the intersectional gender equality agenda.

*Intersectionality is a term coined by Kimberlé Crenshaw, a black American lawyer, civil rights advocate and scholar, which recognises that everyone’s experiences of discrimination (such as racism, sexism and classism) are unique and are cumulative according to how these forms of discrimination combine.
