We're the Intersectional Feminism group at the University of the West of Scotland. We believe that feminism must be inclusive and supportive, and we put on events to raise awareness of issues facing women globally, in Scotland, and at UWS. We also believe in celebrating the achievements of women at UWS, so if you've done something you're proud of, or have a cause you'd like to raise awareness of, get in touch and we'll feature you on our social media!
If you'd like to work with us, or are interested in joining our group, please feel free to get in touch!
This society is an inclusive safe space for everyone who identifies with the label "woman", including non-binary people who may also identify with that label. We work closely with the LGBT+ Society, Trans Network, Disabled Group, BAME Group and Care-Experienced groups to ensure that we are being inclusive at all times.

WHAT ISSUES ARE YOU MOST PASSIONATE ABOUT?: I believe that feminism must be intersectional and accessible. It's not enough to just be anti-sexist when LGBTQ+ and BIPOC women are disproportionately abused by the patriarchal, capitalist structures of society.
