BUILD A JUST TRANSITION TO A FEMINIST ECONOMY

What is Grassroots Feminism?

Grassroots feminism is a worldview and political practice rooted in the realities and interests of women, queer, trans, and non binary people who have been harmed by the intersecting forces of patriarchy, white supremacy, and capitalism. Grassroots Feminism is explicitly and unwaveringly anti-partriarchal, anti-racist, anti-capitalist, and anti-imperialist. We believe in solidarity across identities and borders, and in the joy of collective struggle. We fight for a just transition to a feminist economy where every person has what they need to fully realize themselves while being in right relationship with the planet and each other. The liberation of womxn is bound to the liberation of all oppressed peoples.

This is a living definition, created by the GGJ Grassroots Feminism team with input from our members and movement allies. The definition continues to evolve as we deepen our understanding and embodiment of intersectional radical feminisms. 

At this moment of growing feminist resistance, we are unapologetically left, and insist on grassroots feminism. A new generation of women of color and gender non-conforming leaders is stepping forward to defend our dignity and our future. We are not backing down, we are growing in strength. This is our time.
