  • to use media and workshops to inform people about the problems women face, the damaging impact of patriarchy on people of all genders and how to combat external as well as internal misogyny.

 

  • To celebrate the diversity of opinions found in the feminist movement whilst also keeping focused on common goals that would benefit all women, regardless of class, political affiliation or social standing.

 

  • To have an open discussion about masculinity and how it affects the way people perceive and interact with one another. 

 

  • To look at how conventional notions of femininity and masculinity directly affects social progress.
