Women’s Equality Party launch ‘Feminism 5.0’ programme

Women's Equality Party, Feminism 5.0

The Women’s Equality Party have launched a programme of feminist camps aimed at the new generation of activists.

Launched on International Women’s Day, the Feminism 5.0 programme will help feminists come together and exchange ideas on how to grow the movement.

Over the next year, the party will be holding activist camps across the UK, supporting the next generation of both women and men in how to disrupt, agitate and organise for women’s equality.

Speaking about the introduction of the camps, Sophie Walker, leader of the Women’s Equality Party said, “Our Feminism 5.0 camps will allow activists of all ages from all backgrounds to learn from each other how to make political change.”

“Feminism is moving into a new, fifth wave, as hard-won freedoms are under attack across the globe, and the prospect of a gender-equal future looks more fragile than ever before.”

“Women are beginning to organise and act, and Feminism 5.0 will give these new activists the tools they need to push forward, contesting elections, winning seats and changing attitudes.”

Walker explains that the camps would be intersectional spaces in which participants of different ages, ethnicities, backgrounds and experience will design and build a vision for change.

Walker continues saying, “The shortage of women in politics contributes to a culture that sees women as a special interest group when we are 51% of the population.”

“It normalises gender roles that limit women in work and family life.”

The Women’s Equality Party will be launching further activities throughout the year as part of their Feminism 5.0 programme, including how to get involved in the Women’s Day Off that is being organised for 2018.
